OnePlus has confirmed a key specification for its 2020 handsets, the presumptively named OnePlus 8 family.
Future OnePlus dwvices will feature fast and responsive screens up from 90 Hz to 120 Hz.
Although the company has not confirmed which handsets will be picking up the faster refreshing screens, with both the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro sporting 90 Hz screens when they were launched late last year it’s odds-on that the OnePlus 8 Pro will have the 120 Hz screen. So you can expect an AMOLED panel, supplied by Samsung Display; a Quad HD+ resolution; the touch response is also raised (to 240 Hz); brightness is over 1000 nits; and the panel is a 10-bit panel.
According to the OnePlus team's postson their forum:
“…we’re including MEMC technology to deliver smoother video playback. MEMC is a technology featured in high-end TVs that uses real-time algorithmic adjustments to insert additional frames to a video file, enabling something shot at 24 or 30fps to play at 60 or even 120fps.”
“…JNCD, which means “Just Noticeable Color Difference", is an indicator for measuring color accuracy used by companies including DisplayMate. Current professional displays can achieve a JNCD of less than 2, with some high end models achieving less than 1. By professionally tuning the color display, OnePlus was able to achieve an industry-leading JNCD ratio of less than 0.8 for every single 120 Hz Fluid Display.”
“OnePlus's 120 Hz Fluid Display also provides support for 10-bit color, providing 1,024 shades of each primary color and 1.07 billion possible colors."
OnePlus traditionally launches its main handsets near the end of Q2, but with Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona next month, an announcement of the OnePlus 8 Lite model may be rolled out early.
