OnePlus 9 display leak hints at battery-life boost for Pro model OnePlus 8 Pro

One of the latest big crazes in the smartphone industry is high refresh rates – this means the screen updates more frequently, and it can make motion look a tiny bit smoother. The downside to this is that higher refresh rates can drain the battery quickly – however, it looks like the OnePlus 9 series might not have that issue.

According to prolific leaker Max Jambor, the OnePlus 9 Pro will use LTPO technology in its display. To cut a long and needlessly-technical explanation of LTPO down to its relevant details, this means it’s possible the phone will get a variable refresh rate.
