DisplayMate notes that the OnePlus 8 displays are “top tier OLED display panels from Samsung Display”. You may also remember that the company gave both displays A+ ratings before launch, as they got to test them prior to the announcement.

Both displays either matched or beat a number of records, according to DisplayMate. We’re talking about 13 separate records here, which is a testament to these displays.

The OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro had one of the best displays last year, if not the best ones. It seems like OnePlus decided to improve even more in that regard, though.

DisplayMate notes that both OnePlus 8 handsets have OnePlus Factory Display Calibration, and similar Display performance, functions, and features. The 8 Pro does offer higher-end specifications, though.

The company says that the new 120Hz display refresh rate on the OnePlus 8 Pro improves image scrolling and videos, plus motion and gaming performance in apps.
