The OnePlus 8 series is scheduled to launch later this month. In typical OnePlus fashion though, the company has already confirmed some specs of the OnePlus 8 Pro including the fact that it will come with a 120Hz Fluid Display featuring 10-bit color support and MEMC. Ahead of the phone's release, its display has been put through its paces by DisplayMate where it has managed to earn the highest A+ rating along with the Best Smartphone Display Awards.
In total, the OnePlus 8 Pro's display set 10+ records in DisplayMate's testing including one for color accuracy which is "visually indistinguishable from perfect."

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau also confirmed that the OnePlus 8 series will source the AMOLED panels from Samsung. The company had sourced the 90Hz AMOLED panels for the OnePlus 7 Pro from Samsung as well. While the in-depth report of DisplayMate's testing of the OnePlus 8 Pro's display is yet to be released, PCMag got an exclusive look at it.
The report notes that the OnePlus 8 Pro has a brighter display than the Galaxy S20 Ultra at 50% average picture level (APL). The max brightness level of the display can also go up to 1009 nits at 50% APL, which is slightly higher than the Galaxy S20 Ultra's 995 nits. In screen reflectivity, the OnePlus 8 Pro matches the Galaxy S20 and S10 series and provides a notable improvement over the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Leaked specs of the OnePlus 8 Pro point to it coming with a 6.78-inch QHD+ resolution Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12GB RAM, a 4,510mAh battery with Warp Charge 30T along with wireless charging and reverse wireless charging support.
