The OnePlus 8 is likely to be equipped with a 120 Hz screen for its release in May. Indeed, the CEO of the Chinese manufacturer confirmed today on the social network Weibo the development of this screen technology.
OnePlus today held an event in China. The CEO, Pete Lausaid on Weibo that OnePlus has completed research and development of a 120 Hz screen. However, he has not yet said whether this screen would equip the OnePlus 8.
OnePlus could equip its new flagship store with a 120 Hz screen
In 2019, OnePlus had already been talked about by integrating a 90 Hz screen in all its phones including the OnePlus 7T Pro or the OnePlus 7T. It would therefore not be surprising if the manufacturer raised the bar higher this year with an ultra-fluid 120 Hz screen.

The 120 Hz screens on smartphones are nothing new. Indeed, “gaming” phones such as theAsus ROG Phone 2 and the two versions of the Razer Phone are already equipped. OnePlus would however be the leading consumer phone manufacturer to offer this screen technology to users.

In addition, the respected leaker, Ice Universe, posted on Twitter a slide that OnePlus would have shown today during the event. This slide suggests that the display would support 10 bit color depth and the MEMC motion effects (Motion Estimation Motion Compensation).

Finally, if the OnePlus 8 is actually equipped with a 120 Hz screen, you can enjoy a ultra-smooth scrolling as well as games posted to a very high refresh rate. In addition, if we refer to the slide above, the support of the phone with a 240 Hz response rate guarantees a very fast reaction when the user (or rather the player in this case) presses a button or touches the screen.
