The Chinese company OnePlus has set one of the trends this year by implementing a screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate in the smartphone. The innovation was received from the OnePlus 7 Pro model, presented on May 15th. Users appreciated the idea with an increased frame rate: thanks to it, the smartphone works in a more reactive and fluid way. Now there is information that the future OnePlus 8 Pro model will receive this "chip".
In addition, the next-generation smartphone will improve the performance of its predecessor, showing the world a screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate. This was reported by the Max J. insider on his Twitter.
Until now, there was only one line of devices on the market with this feature: Razer Phone gaming smartphones. This update frequency is twice that used by the iPhone 11 Pro screen. By the way, the American company also plans to increase this parameter in future smartphones – but at that point there will be more than one model with an ultra-fluid display on the market.
It is interesting to note that these screens are already on the iPad Pro tablets. The technology is called ProMotion and allows you to overclock the refresh rate to 120 Hz. Because it was not received by the iPhone 11 Pro with the same hardware is a mystery.
The features of the OnePlus 8 Pro are still unknown, but it can be assumed that the smartphone will receive a Snapdragon 865 chipset, an OLED screen with QHD resolution with an integrated fingerprint scanner, a 60 megapixel camera based only on the announced Sony IMX686 sensor and a battery with a capacity of at least 4000 mAh with ultra-fast wireless charging.
The presentation should traditionally take place in late spring. However, insiders probably won't have you waiting long, "emptying" the functionality of the device long before the announcement.
