Leaks of the upcoming OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones are coming more frequently. The latest leak doesn’t reveal any new information, but it is something we haven’t seen yet. A report from True Tech cites an unnamed reader, who claims they are a OnePlus employee. The image below was submitted – a shot of the alleged OnePlus 8 Pro’s display.
The display is showing the 120Hz setting of the OnePlus 8 Pro, something that OnePlus has already confirmed for its upcoming smartphone, though only through a couple of teasers. The new display would be able to show screen contents in 120Hz, as well as 90Hz (like the 2019 OnePlus 7 phones) and the standard 60Hz.
One thing the report is wary about is confirming that the OnePlus 8 Pro would even be able to display 120Hz above Full HD+ resolution (the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to come a QHD+ panel). Above the display is a circular punch-hole selfie camera, as previously seen in CAD renders of the upcoming phone. OnePlus intends to drop the pop-up selfie camera this year.
OnePlus is rumored to be releasing three variants this year including a standard, Lite, and Pro version – only the latter is expected to have the 120Hz display but we hope it’s the top two.
OnePlus will enable motion smoothing on the new phone so all videos can take advantage of the smoothness. The verdict is out on whether people will enjoy the added smoothness or cringe at the surrealism.
There's still no word on when the new OnePlus trio will be arriving, we'll likely get a better idea leading up to or following MWC.
I agree! Punch holes are a serious step backwards! Pop up is way better until they get under screen cameras perfected.
No Broken screen is THE right way. No punch hole, no year drop, nothing that disrupt the screen.
