OnePlus 7 Pro's QHD+ display is certified for HDR10+
With the OnePlus 7 Pro launching just over a week from now, the company is starting to reveal more information about the flagship. We already know that the phone will have a QHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and OnePlus has detailed that the screen is certified for HDR10+. Calling it a "display of the future," the OnePlus 7 Pro joins a handful of flagships that offer HDR10+:
The display on the device has already picked up an A+ rating from DisplayMate, with OnePlus CEO Pete Lau noting that the panel will set a "benchmark for the smartphone industry:"
Elsewhere, the OnePlus 7 Pro will have three cameras at the back with a 3x optical zoom lens, and a retractable selfie camera that creates an all-screen front. The phone is now up for pre-booking in India (opens in new tab), and it is slated to retail for ₹49,999 ($725) in the country once it goes on sale next week. You'll have to shell out $749 in global markets to get your hands on the device.
Update: An earlier version of the article referenced HDR10 playback for Netflix and YouTube. OnePlus clarified that it's not ready to share content partnerships just yet, so we'll have to wait until May 14 to know more on this front.
