What you need to know

  • A new rumor claims the OnePlus 8 Pro will come with a 120Hz display.
  • The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to feature a hole-punch display measuring 6.65-inches diagonally.
  • Unlike the OnePlus 7T Pro, which has a notch-free panel, the OnePlus 8 Pro will have a hole-punch cutout in the upper left corner.

OnePlus was among the first smartphone makers to launch a non-gaming smartphone with a 90Hz display earlier this year. Until the OnePlus 7 Pro came out in May this year, displays with a 90Hz or higher refresh rate were only found on gaming smartphones. If a new rumor (via PhoneArena) is to be believed, OnePlus is now working on its first smartphone with a 120Hz display.

Tipster Max J. claims that the next "Pro" device from OnePlus, i.e. the OnePlus 8 Pro, will feature a 120Hz refresh rate display. The standard OnePlus 8, on the other hand, will likely have a 90Hz panel similar to the current OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro. Flagship smartphones from most smartphone makers, including Samsung, are expected to come with 90Hz displays next year.

We got our first look at the OnePlus 8 Pro last month, courtesy of highly reliable tipster @OnLeaks, who shared the CAD-based renders of flagship smartphone. The renders had revealed a slightly tweaked design with a hole-punch in the upper left corner of the display, instead of the notch-free design of the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to come with a 6.65-inch display featuring curved edges on both sides. It will also include a triple camera array at the back with a 3D ToF sensor. Under the hood, it is likely to be powered by Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 865 chipset.

  • Still no ip rating
  • First, you've got no idea whether that's true or not. Second, an IP rating is still worthless.
  • I have to agree. If companies can falsely advertise their phones are perfectly fine under water and then not warrant water damage the IP ratings are worthless.
  • I'm betting this hints at Samsung Galaxy S11 because:
    1. the source is aka "Samsung_News"
    2. this supports other rumors suggesting Galaxy S11 will have 120 Hz display
  • I think 90hz is more than enough actually. Unless they can do it in a way that will allow the screen to still get bright outdoors and not devour the battery in the process. Can this be done efficiently is the question.
  • Hopefully it isn't the size of a tablet. Also, has OnePlus enabled "Always on Display" yet? Without a notification light or "Always on Display" their phones are a non-starter for me.
  • Hopefully they put a 5000 mAH bettery in it
