OnePlus has confirmed key details of the 8T’s screen, and it promises to be a meaningful upgrade even compared to the 8 Pro.True to the rumors, the OnePlus 8T display will have a 120Hz refresh rate previously limited to the high-end 8 Pro. It won’t necessarily represent a dramatic improvement over the 90Hz of the OnePlus 8, but it should still be a welcome upgrade if you value smooth scrolling on the online or social apps.
The 8T also will represent a primary for any OnePlus phone: a 2.5D flexible screen. No, it’s not a foldable phone, but company chief Pete Lau told TechRadar that the 6.55-inch panel allows more light and a peak brightness of 1,100 nits — you shouldn’t be squinting to ascertain content on a sunny day. It should have ever-so-slightly thinner bezels than earlier OnePlus phones, managing a 91.9% screen-to-body ratio versus ‘just’ 90.8% on the 8 Pro.
Color accuracy will still be attention . OnePlus is touting 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space on the 8T’s display, with a Just Noticeable Color Difference 0f 0.3 and support for HDR10+ to spice up the dynamic range of supporting content like videos.
OnePlus didn’t say more about the 8T beyond discussing its screen. If history is any indication, though, you’ll expect it to dribble out details within the weeks leading up to the launch. There could also be a couple of . Rumors have suggested the 8T may get quad rear cameras and a rather faster Snapdragon 865 Plus chip.
