OnePlus 9 series rumoured to launch by mid-March.
OnePlus 9 Pro could have LTPO display technology developed by Apple.
OnePlus 9 will not have LTPO screen.
OnePlus 9 Pro could feature an LTPO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) display, as per the latest leak. We have previously seen Samsung use an LTPO display on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra, though it was Apple that developed it for use on the Series 4. An LTPO display is a technology that is more efficient than the LTPS (Low-temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) technology as it uses lesser power and brings in support for adaptive refresh rate.
According to a tweet by popular tipster Max Jambor, the OnePlus 9 Pro is expected to feature an LTPO display which will offer adaptive refresh rate between 10-120Hz and is responsible for saving the battery as it utilizes less power. Moreover, the tipster has told PhoneArena that the OnePlus 9 will not be getting an LTPO screen and instead will have to make do with the standard panel.
