The details of the OnePlus 9 Pro screen have been officially revealed by the company ahead of the March 23 launch. In a blog post, the company confirmed that the upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro will offer a low temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel will work with a QHD + or 2K resolution, similar to the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone.
To offer the best possible experience, the company offers top-notch hardware to users with OnePlus 9 Pro. The phone also offers support for native 10-bit color depth, 1300-nit maximum brightness, and HDR10 +. The device even supports MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation), so sports content can be viewed at ultra-smooth frame rates.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will have a 360Hz tactile response, which the company calls “Hyper Touch.” OnePlus promises that this feature will reduce up to 30ms of latency in action games, helping to deliver a better gaming experience. OnePlus claims that Hyper Touch support will deliver up to 6x faster sync speed between screen and processor compared to other devices.
Comparatively, both the OnePlus 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra have a 120Hz display with 240Hz touch sample rate. It is worth noting that Xiaomi’s Mi 11 offers the fastest response with a touch response of 480Hz. It’s still nice to have a 360Hz touch response rate, as you rarely get it.
OnePlus claims that Hyper Touch supports games like Call of Duty Mobile, League of Legends, PUBG, and Brawl Stars. It is promising that the other games will get Hyper Touch support in the near future.
One of the standout features that the OnePlus 9 Pro will have is the LTPO OLED display that dynamically adapts the refresh rate from 120Hz to just 1Hz, depending on the requirement. This will further save a good amount of battery life when watching static content.
OnePlus claims that the OnePlus 9 Pro’s display “uses up to 50 percent less power while continuously delivering a super-smooth 120Hz viewing experience when needed.” Comparatively, the lowest refresh rate of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is 10 Hz.
