OnePlus is sending out press invites for an upcoming event in Shenzhen, China scheduled for January 13 where the company is going to introduce a new screen technology. There’s no further clues as of now but according to speculation, we’ll see the company’s first 120Hz refresh rate screens.
Some rumors suggest we could see the upcoming OnePlus 8 lineup but this would be less than three months after the release of the current 7T series, breaking the company’s May and October release cycle.
It’s more likely that this event is just a short briefing focused on the new 120Hz screens rather than a full reveal of the next gen OnePlus phones. The company seems fully committed to the high refresh rate game as co-founder Carl Pei mentioned that all future OnePlus devices will come with at least 90Hz refresh rate screens.
Anyway, we’ll just have to wait and see what OnePlus has in store for this event. As usual, we’ll keep you posted with all the headlines after the keynote.
