ordinary OnePlus 9 gets “better” screen than Pro model


The screen of the OnePlus 9 Pro is rumored to have a variable refresh rate of 10 to 120 times per second. The regular OnePlus 9 would always refresh 120 times per count and therefore look smooth in any scenario.

‘OnePlus 9 Pro gets adaptive 120Hz screen’

Max Jambor, which more often leaks correct information about future smartphones, claims on Twitter that the OnePlus 9 Pro will get an adaptive 120Hz screen. This means that the device adapts the refresh rate to your behavior. For example, if you scroll through your social media, the image refreshes 120 times per second. As a result, the content looks very smooth.

When you type an e-mail and there is little movement on your screen, you only see a new image ten times per beat. This saves you valuable battery juice. We already saw such a display on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The normal OnePlus 9 would have a ‘normal’ 120Hz screen on board. So the display always refreshes 120 times per second, whatever you are doing on your smartphone. The OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8T also have such a screen.

Although the Pro model is probably more efficient with the battery, you could call the screen of the regular OnePlus 9 better. There is a chance that the Pro uses a lower refresh rate in some situations than you would like. For example if you switch from a static screen to dynamic content. With the normal 9 you can be sure that the image always looks smooth.

The OnePlus 9 will probably also have a flat screen, while that of the Pro version has curved edges. What you like best is of course very personal.

We think we know about the OnePlus 9 series

The announcement of the OnePlus 9 models may already be in March. The normal version and the Pro model presumably run on the super fast Snapdragon 888 processor. In addition, we expect a cheaper OnePlus 9E or OnePlus 9 Lite. It would have the older Snapdragon 865 on board, although this processor is still very fast.

The battery of the OnePlus 9 Pro probably has a capacity of 4500 mAh. That’s just as much as the OnePlus 8 Pro. According to rumors, the camera of the OnePlus 9 Pro is a significant improvement compared to its predecessor. It is said to have been developed in collaboration with the renowned camera manufacturer Hasselblad.
