OnePlus 8 Pro to reportedly boast 120Hz screen refresh rate

Earlier this year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T, and 7T Pro with a high screen refresh rate of 90Hz. Now it looks like the company taking the display tech to a whole new level with its next flagship, the OnePlus 8 Pro. If a report by the popular gadget tipster Max J. on Twitter is to be believed, the OnePlus 8 Pro will flaunt a super-smooth refresh rate of 120Hz. OnePlus will be taking on the likes of Razer and ASUS’ ROG Phone series with the OnePlus 8 Pro. Notably, Razer and ASUS were among the first brands to offer a screen refresh rate of 120Hz on their handsets.

Unfortunately, the tipster hasn’t revealed anything else about the display of the OnePlus 8 Pro flagship. However, just like the other phones with high screen refresh rate, you can expect the next-gen OnePlus flagship to provide less motion blur, and enhance your smartphone experience by providing smoother scrolling through the app drawer, images, webpages, and more. It also improves your gaming experience by offering cleaner graphics as there’s no visual tearing on the screen.

OnePlus 8 Pro specifications and features

According to the earlier reports, the OnePlus 8 Pro will sport a 6.65-inch display of unknown resolution. The screen will be curved on both sides. The phone is expected to feature a hole in the screen to house the selfie camera, and feature considerably slimmer bezels at the bottom and top. The handset will likely utilise the next-gen Qualcomm flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865. The device could offer up to 12GB of RAM, up to 512GB of native storage, and boot the Android 10-based OxygenOS out of the box.

OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to be the brand’s first phone to flaunt a quad-camera system at the rear

It’s worth mentioning that the OnePlus 8 Pro is tipped to be the brand’s first smartphone to flaunt a quad-camera setup at the rear. The handset is expected to have an ultra-wide angle lens, a telephoto shooter with 3x optical zoom, and a primary camera featuring either a 64MP or a 108MP sensor. The other rumoured specs include a USB Type-C port, a redesigned speaker grille, and support for 5G networks.
