OnePlus is believed to be taking major steps to increase display experience on its next flagship smartphone. There are already rumours that OnePlus will release at least two models this – one regular and second a Pro model. While there are already rumours floating around in the rumour realm that OnePlus 7 Pro will offer a 90 Hz refresh rate enabled display.
The CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau’s confirmation couldn’t have come at a better time. Well, unfortunately, he didn’t hand out enough details in talk with The Verge. But we know enough to get excited for the display viewing experience on the upcoming OnePlus 7.
What should you expect from OnePlus 7 Pro?
In his talk, Pete Lau teases that the display on the company’s new phone will redefine fast and smooth. It is something Mr. Lau has already tweeted about a couple of days ago. Initially indicating by three Os on that “Fast and Smoooth text” animation. But it’s fairly clear now, that CEO cleverly gave us the information about the display. The 90 Hz display is said to be 3/2 of the 60Hz display, which is the typical refresh rate of smartphone displays these days.
OnePlus won’t be the first to introduce this technology on the smartphone display. Razer has done that long ago with its two flagships sporting a 120Hz display technology. Last year Asus showcased 90 Hz display on its ROG phone. But unfortunately, these refresh rates were not valid across the entire user experience. Instead was limited for the only gaming experience.
Excited to share the next product from OnePlus will unleash a new era of Fast and Smooth. Especially Smooth! Smooth is more challenging than Fast – a true test of hardware and software.
The new product is just beautiful – I can’t wait for you to see it! 😬✨ pic.twitter.com/yPU9sEbeIv

Honestly, you wouldn’t want a high refresh rate phones, and my colleague once quoted, higher refresh rate displays don’t make sense for mobile gaming. On the other hand, Apple with its latest iPad Pro has showcased the benefits of higher fresh rate display. The 120 Hz display on its iPad Pro uses ProMotion system offering variable fresh rate. Just instead of pumping out 120fps on a static screen.
As reported by The Verge, OnePlus could follow this suite on its next flagship phone. Incorporating the higher fresh rate display technology for better buttery smooth user experience across the entire system. Wouldn’t that be something? Well, apparently, Pete Lau thinks they have cracked yet another user experience index. And we may be inclined to believe so as the history has been with them.
