After weeks of leaks and teasers, OnePlus has finally launched its latest flagship, the OnePlus 9 series of phones. The series brings with itself three new phones, OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and a new affordable entrant, the OnePlus 9R. While the last one is an interesting offering, it's the OnePlus 9 (review) and the OnePlus 9 Pro (review) that are the most interesting devices from the line-up.
There is a lot to like when it comes to these phones, but as is the case with most OnePlus devices, there's a keen focus on the display department. Talking about the displays of the phones, the major difference between the display of the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro is that the former features a flat 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with support for Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution. The display has a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and supports a 120Hz high refresh rate. It is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass for added protection against drops.
In comparison, the OnePlus 9 Pro features a 6.7-inch QHD+ (3216x1440 pixels) resolution AMOLED curved display with LTPO backplane technology and supports a 120Hz refresh rate. The LTPO technology allows the OnePlus 9 Pro to consume lesser power and gives dynamic refresh rate control ranging from as low as 1Hz to 120Hz. Furthermore, the display offers up to 367Hz touch sampling rate which comes in handy when gaming on the 9 Pro. The screen has a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera, is certified for HDR10+ playback with MEMC and has Gorilla Glass protection.
We've compared the two displays to figure out how they stack up against each other. However, we didn't just stop there. To increase the stakes, we also threw in the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max in the comparison. The main tool used for this exhaustive comparison was Calman Ultimate paired with their C6 HDR2000 colourimeter. Watch our comparison video to find out all you need to know about the displays.
