OnePlus is working on its upcoming flagship smartphones – OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Both smartphones are likely to launch in the second quarter of next year.
Now as per tipster Max J on Twitter, OnePlus 8 Pro will feature a super smooth display with 120Hz refresh rate. Notably, Asus has already launched ROG Phone II in the market with 120Hz display and it is the first smartphone which is offering 120Hz display.

If this comes true, then it will be an improvement from 90Hz refresh rate we saw on the OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7T series of smartphones.
At the moment, it is currently not known if the standard OnePlus 8 will also feature a similar refresh rate. Reports reveal that it will likely to retain the 90Hz display from the OnePlus 7T.
Samsung is rumoured to be planning a 90Hz display on its upcoming Galaxy S11 series. On the other hand, Apple will reportedly include its “ProMotion OLED” display on iPhones getting launched in 2020, which is basically a 120Hz refresh rate screen.
Renders of the OnePlus 8 Pro were leaked last month. OnePlus 8 Pro will have similar design profile as the OnePlus 7 Pro but with one major difference. The OnePlus 8 Pro will have a hole-punch display on the front, thus letting go of the pop-up selfie camera which was on the OnePlus 7 Pro. The phone will measure 165.3 x 74.4 x 8.8mm.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to feature a 6.65-inch display and a 90Hz refresh rate. OnePlus 8 Pro has four cameras at the back. The main camera module is positioned vertically like on the OnePlus 8. This is accompanied by an additional 3D Time-of-Flight sensor which will help improve depth sensing for portrait shots and bokeh.
As of now, no hardware details about the upcoming OnePlus flagship smartphones are known. We expect to get more details about these devices through leaks in the coming days.
