OnePlus 8 Pro To Have A WQHD 120Hz Panel: May Leave Samsung in The Dust

The screen and display revolution saga continues with OnePlus and Samsung to be the main players. We first got to know that Samsung would be making history with a WQHD panel that would support a 120Hz refresh rate. Then OnePlus made headlines by showing a similar display tech but with a 240Hz responsive rate. The story continued to showcase the fact that Samsung would feature a 120Hz panel but sadly, there was something lacking. According to the article here, it covers the fact of how Samsung would not be continuing a 120Hz refresh rate with WQHD display. The article can be viewed here.

Now, going over the latest development in this story, Ice Universe plays a big part once again. Being a part of all the leaks and news about these developments, Ice Universe posted its latest tweet. The tweet suggests that OnePlus would surely be featuring a display panel with WQHD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The composer of this tweet gives his views on the idea of this development.

Considering how Samsung will be restricting its users to either be on FHD and 120Hz or at WQHD at 60Hz, we see that people would not be so excited about it. On the other hand, OnePlus has always been the people pleaser with new tech at a very reasonable rate. This may set a new precedent as we have seen earlier.

We saw how OnePlus has grown into a company which is revolutionising the American market, being offered by on cellular contracts as well. Perhaps with the OnePlus 8 Pro, we might see it outshine the Samsung S20 series of devices. We may perhaps see a paradigm shift in the market trends in the near future. Only time will tell.
