OnePlus is announcing its new OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone on May 14.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will be the successor to the company’s OnePlus 6T smartphone, which was released in November 2018.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will come with more premium features, such as a special display that OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said is “super smooth” and “very crisp.” Lau didn’t confirm what he meant, but there are rumors that the OnePlus 7 Pro will have a display with a 90-hertz refresh rate compared with the 60-hertz refresh rate on iPhones and the Galaxy S10. That extra 30 hertz would enable the OnePlus 7 Pro’s screen to render an extra 30 frames per second for animations, which could make a noticeable difference for mobile games, swiping around apps, and the Android operating system.

Lau also confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro will come with 5G connectivity.

There’s no official confirmation that a more standard “non-pro” OnePlus 7 smartphone will also be announced.
