OnePlus 10 Pro is officially confirmed to debut in China in January next year. Ahead of it, the Chinese smartphone brand’s Co-Founder and CEO Pete Lau has teased display specifications of the upcoming handset via Weibo. The flagship phone, which will succeed OnePlus 9 Pro is confirmed to pack a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display. With this technology, OnePlus 10 Pro will be capable of reducing screen refresh rate all the way down to 1Hz from 120Hz — based on content. The handset is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to debut alongside the vanilla OnePlus 10.
Lau took to Weibo to confirm that the company’s upcoming flagship, OnePlus 10 Pro, will use LTPO 2.0. He claims that LTPO 2.0 will deliver a new level of smoother screen experience. However, it sounds like an upgrade to the OnePlus 9 Pro’s screen.
An LTPO display allows the phone to clock down from a 120Hz refresh rate to as low as 1Hz depending based on content. The LTPO display technology is said to improve the phone’s battery life compared to the conventional LTPS OLED screens. OnePlus has provided an LTPO OLED display on OnePlus 9 Pro(review) as well.
OnePlus 10 Pro is confirmed to launch in January, but the company is yet to reveal an official date.
