OnePlus teases 120Hz motion smoothing for its new Fluid Display

0 3

Over the last few days, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has been teasing the company’s upcoming smartphone display. The next OnePlus flagship will feature a 120Hz Fluid Display and in an effort to make the higher frame rate more useful for content consumers, Lau has confirmed on Twitter that the OnePlus 8 Pro will enable motion interpolation.

What this means is that a user can watch a 30fps or 60fps video and a custom-made “MEMC” chip in the 8 Pro will be able to create additional frames to simulate a higher frame rate. This is a common feature among higher-end TVs and one that Hollywood actors have previously frowned upon – by changing the frame rate, you are altering the intended experience of the viewer.

Yesterday, Lau shared a comparison of the 120Hz Fluid Display with a conventional 60Hz screen. Of course, to accurately compare both devices on 60Hz screens, the footage had to be slowed down to 30 fps (25% speed).

The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to arrive with a hole-punch selfie camera, a quad-camera setup, all a similar appearance to the OnePlus 7 Pro. Leaked specs reveal a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and run the latest version of Oxygen OS.

We still don’t have a firm timeframe for the announcement of the OnePlus 8 series, but given the teasers are coming this early in the year, it might be sooner than May.
