Future OnePlus smartphones will continue to use Optic AMOLED displays


Now that co-founder Carl Pei cleared up things about the production of OnePlus 3, it's time to talk a little bit about the company's future smartphones. Although rumors claim the Chinese handset maker plans to introduce yet another Android phone by the end of this year, OnePlus confirmed a while ago that it will try and focus on a single device each year.

Basically, this means that the OnePlus 3 Plus that you've all been waiting for might not be announced until next year. But anything is possible in the smartphone business and since OnePlus is still unable to keep up with the demand for its latest flagship due to AMOLED display shortages, the solution might be to release a slightly tweaked version of the OnePlus 3 with a different display.

However, that will certainly not happen, as OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed through a series of tweets that his company won't drop the Optic AMOLED displays anytime soon.


Moreover, Carl Pei announced that the company's engineers have started fine tuning and making small modifications to the AMOLED display inside the OnePlus 3. He also added that the R&D is now working to improve the Optic AMOLED display, so it can be used in future smartphones the company plans to launch in the years to come.

According to Pei, the Optic AMOLED is OnePlus' take on AMOLED screens, which is one of the reasons the company is not willing to drop it for the foreseeable future.

Soon after the OnePlus 3 was officially unveiled, the Chinese company explained how and why is tempering with the AMOLED display that is now calling Optic AMOLED.

It's amoled display with oneplus specific color calibration...still don't like pentile/diamond sub-pixel pattern. Wish oneplus had partnered with LG to build proper (RGB) oled display.

LG doesn't have anywhere near the capacity to produce huge amounts of phone OLED displays at a reasonable quality and cost. As proven by their own product attempts. Their PMOLED alternative requires a lot more voltage. Great for a display that is almost always off (watch without always on abilities for example), pretty useless for a phone where it will eat battery like no other with SoT that can surpass 3 hours a day.

LG don't even make OLED displays for their own flagship phones yet you expect them to supply them to others? Are you stupid?

Then it would be called an OPPO phone. The parent has all of those "features". The child is cheaper because they leave it out.
