The other day we saw a leak that showed the OnePlus 8 series and the apps its MEMC supported. Today OnePlus have shown off the video today, also mentioning the dedicated chip they will have to accomplish this.
MEMC is a technology which is designed to improve the video playback by using “real-time algorithmic adjustments to insert additional frames to a video file, enabling something shot at 24 or 30fps to play at 60 or even 120fps.” To do this on the OnePlus 8 series — yes, not just the Pro — OnePlus have included a dedicated MEMC chip.

With a dedicated MEMC chip, the #OnePlus8Series is set to make your viewing experience more seamless by upscaling videos from 24 fps up to a breathtakingly ﬂuid 120 fps.

At this stage it is still unclear just how useful and effective the technology is with it being less than ideal on larger TVs but you would suspect that OnePlus will have done a lot of testing on it with good results and would not have included it otherwise.
The OnePlus 8 series will be launched online on April 14, 11am EDT (US) — 12pm AET (Melbourne) — and while we know quite a bit about it already we cannot wait to see just what OnePlus bring to the stage to surprise us with.
