Upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G to Adopt Ultra-Smooth 120Hz Fluid Display
Published On Sep 24, 2020
OnePlus further extends pro-level display experience across flagship smartphone lineup
OnePlus has once again redefined the smartphone viewing experience by bringing a 120Hz display to the upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G, providing users an ultra-smooth, lightning-fast display with outstanding color accuracy. After introducing a buttery smooth curved 120Hz display for the first time on the OnePlus 8 Pro in April, OnePlus is now expanding its leading display technology by introducing a flat 120Hz display on the OnePlus 8T 5G, the latest OnePlus display to earn an overall A+ display rating from DisplayMate.
"We’ve pushed the refresh rate to 120Hz for an even smoother display experience for our ultra-premium flagship OnePlus 8 Pro earlier this year. We were happy to see that it was widely received by our users," said Pete Lau, founder and CEO of OnePlus. "With technology evolving and manufacturing technology improving, we are able to bring 120Hz to a wider range of our products, providing the best-in-class display technology and experience to even more people."
Better Display, Even Better
The display on the OnePlus 8T 5G supports an impressive refresh rate of 120Hz, technology only available on top flagship lineups during the first half of 2020. Together with a sampling rate of up to 240Hz and reduced latency, users will be able to enjoy the most intense games with remarkable fluidity and scroll effortlessly through social media feeds, enjoying a buttery smooth display experience.
To draw out the true potential of a 120Hz display, the OnePlus software team implemented as many as 142 software optimizations to give users the best fast and smooth experience possible.
Color as You’ve Never Seen It
To ensure the highest color accuracy possible across the industry, OnePlus 8T 5G display panels went through the same rigorous color calibration process as the OnePlus 8 series. With a Just Noticeable Color Difference (JNCD) of around 0.3, OnePlus 8T 5G ensures every detail appears natural and true-to-life.
Furthermore, with 100% DCI-P3, the color space favored by the film industry featuring a much wider color gamut, the OnePlus 8T 5G can display more colors than ordinary display panels. This provides a richer, more accurate color expression, helping to earn an overall A+ display rating from DisplayMate.
With its FHD+ 2.5D flexible display and HDR10+ standard, the OnePlus 8T 5G’s display creatives an immersive viewing experience for users whether it's watching HD videos, swiping through photos or playing games.
The OnePlus 8 Pro’s flicker-detect sensor is also added to the OnePlus 8T 5G with environmental sensitivity. In addition, we also raised the brightness adjustment scale to 8,192 levels, which is equivalent to 8 times the average brightness level detectable to the human eye, making the transition between various brightness settings feel natural and comfortable.
Also, using the same E3 luminescent material as the 8 series, OnePlus 8T 5G’s 120Hz Fluid Display reduces potential harmful blue light, allowing users to enjoy even more screen time.
