OnePlus 8T to come with 120Hz refresh rate display
OnePlus 8T to feature 6.55-inch screen
OnePlus 8T set to launch on October 14 in India
OnePlus 8T is officially confirmed to launch with a 6.55-inch display with 120Hz high-refresh-rate support on October 14 in India. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has revealed some key details about the display of the upcoming successor to the OnePlus 8 series as speculations are rife that we may not see a OnePlus 8T Pro this year. OnePlus 8T has been detailed in multiple leaks previously but this is the first time we are getting official information about the phone straight from the horse’s mouth.
In an exclusive interview with TechRadar, Lau has revealed that the OnePlus 8T features a 6.55-inch display which is the same size as the OnePlus 8, with support for 120Hz high refresh rate. The 8T will be the second OnePlus phone to come with support for 120Hz refresh rate, the first being the OnePlus 8 Pro that launched earlier this year.
Moreover, Lau has stated that the OnePlus 8T uses a 2.5D “flexible screen” that offers upto 1100 nits of brightness and covers 91.9% of the phone, the maximum OnePlus has gone till now. This means that the bezels on the phone could be narrower than previous generations. The company has also fine-tuned the display and “reached a Just Noticeable Color Difference (JNCD) of around 0.3” which means that the screen will be one of the best in the business at the time of launch.
