Future OnePlus smartphones will continue to use Optic AMOLED displays
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.
