It is highly possible that OnePlus might use the new 120Hz display in its upcoming OnePlus 8 flagship series. The company has already launched a few phones with 90Hz displays in 2019 such as the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro. So far, gaming phones like the ASUS ROG Phone 2, Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 have offered 120Hz panels for super smooth animations, especially while gaming. OnePlus is now looking to be one of the fist mainstream companies to launch a phone with 120Hz display.
As for the OnePlus 8-series, they are expected to adopt the new punch-hole design to accommodate the selfie camera. OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have 5G connectivity through Snapdragon X55 modem. OnePlus 8 Lite could come with last year’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. The Pro variant is said to rock quad-camera setup at the back and the standard OnePlus 8 could get a vertically-arranged triple camera module.
