Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies, said:
OnePlus has quickly established itself as an industry leader in display performance, consistently providing among the best implementations of OLED technology on the market. The OnePlus 8 series continues that tradition of excellence, improving on the outstanding results of last year’s OnePlus 7 series and keeping OnePlus ahead of the curve.
OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau, said:
