With the Samsung Galaxy S20 all set to bring its next flagship with a 120 Hz display next month, it seems like OnePlus isn’t far behind with the company announcing that it’s currently working on a new QHD+ OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The likes of the ASUS ROG Phone 2 and the Razer Phone 2 already have 120 Hz displays on board, so this is definitely not new to the mobile industry.
Information doing the rounds on social media sites like Twitter and Weibo (China) suggests that this display will have 10-bit color depth, which will also assist in offering true HDR10 performance with supported videos. It is being reported that this display was developed by OnePlus in tandem with Samsung. Further, OnePlus mentions that this new display comes with Just Noticeable Color Differences (JNCD) of 0.8, while the Galaxy Note 10 recorded a JNCD of 0.4, suggesting that Samsung really has no competition in terms of mobile display tech right now.
As for official confirmation, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that the company’s upcoming flagship will possess a 120 Hz display. He also hyped up its release by mentioning that the OnePlus 8 will have the “best smartphone display in 2022”, so this is certainly something to look forward to.
While OnePlus has been relatively absent from the American mobile industry, the company has struck partnerships with the likes of T-Mobile, Sprint, with Verizon speculated to carry the company’s 2020 flagship – the OnePlus 8 later this year. It will be interesting to see how the OnePlus 8 will stack up against flagships from the likes of Samsung, LG, and so on.
