Realme’s product manager, Wang Wei Derek has made it official on Weibo that the company will bring a phone with 90Hz display and it will cost lower than the OnePlus 7. It's being assumed that this mysterious phone could be the Pro version of the Realme XT.
And, there are already leaks available on the Realme XT Pro that state the device could feature a 32MP selfie camera, 64MP primary rear camera paired with an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro lens and another 2MP sensor for portraits, thus making a total of four cameras. It is also expected to come with 30W fast charging, an in-display fingerprint scanner, NFC and a 4,000mAH battery.

Oppo has hinted that it has a new smartphone in its pipeline to introduce with the 90Hz display. The company’s Vice President Shen Yiren Brian has teased about the same via Weibo. The 90Hz display hasn't been officially uttered by his post on Weibo hints at the possibility.
The other key details on the device in question are scarce, so we can’t comment on the same. But you can expect it to be an upper mid-range device from Oppo because a 90Hz display would require a powerful processor and this could be fulfilled by a flagship one.
While giving a hint at a phone with 90Hz, Brian did explicitly mention that it’s not the Reno 2 which has 90Hz, rather, it’s going to be a new offering from the company. The Reno 2 that went official in India last month is yet to launch in China.
The 90Hz is steadily gaining popularity in the smartphones industry, especially when OnePlus recently introduced it via the OnePlus 7 Pro. Now, a couple more devices are expected to bring this new tech via their upcoming smartphones. Huawei Mate 30 and the Pixel 4 are expected to have 90Hz refresh rate to offer you a smoother experience while you access or scroll anything on your device.
Higher refresh rates have been common in the specific gaming industry and phones like Asus ROG gaming phone and Nubia Red Magic 3 have gained this feature as well but it’s only now that the craze is picking up since a mainstream company OnePlus has made it possible.
We will soon hear more about Oppo’s mysterious phone with 90Hz, so stay tuned and come back for more related stuff.
