OnePlus 10 Pro: "LTPO 2.0" technology for the flagship phone's display is confirmed
One of Pete Lau's latest Weibo posts had hinted strongly at a January 2022 launch for the 10 Pro, currently touted as this brand's upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered top-end smartphone. Now, the executive has returned to the social media platform with a new teaser for this phone's display.
Lau prefaced this new official spec leak with a short history of OnePlus' role in spearheading mobile screen technology, such as its early adoption of 90Hz QHD+ AMOLED back in the days of the 7 series. The company then progressed to "next-gen" LTPO technology in the 9 Pro, a spec now revealed to see an upgrade in the 10 Pro.
This "LTPO 2.0" will be incorporated into a new premium display panel, once again supplied by Samsung. According to Lau, this will enhance the "smoothness" of the UI to be found on the 10 Pro (possibly the first phone to ship with OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12).
Finally, the CEO referred to the 1-120Hz VRR technology found in the flagship 9 series, thereby possibly hinting at the same again for the 10 Pro. All of these potentially interesting properties are tipped to act on a ~6.7-inch 1440p AMOLED display.
