OnePlus 3 not switching away from AMOLED screens after all


Yesterday we reported on a rumor that suggested OnePlus was preparing to halt production on the current OnePlus 3 in order to begin work on a new model. That appears to be untrue, however, as a OnePlus spokesperson reached out to Android Authority to confirm that the company is still producing the OnePlus 3.

Initially, the rumors began because of shortages in the AMOLED supply chain, which meant the OnePlus 3 might be switching to an LCD screen if the rumor were true. CEO Carl Pei later tweeted to confirm the company plans on sticking with AMOLED after backlash about the switch happened on the OnePlus forums.

That doesn’t mean the AMOLED display shortage is magically over with, however. The gold OnePlus 3 still shows as out of stock and delivery times for the grey version is listed at weeks. Still, it’s nice to see OnePlus weigh in on the issue, especially considering the difference in display technology between AMOLED and LCD. I don’t know about you, but when I make buying decisions about a phone, I prefer AMOLED displays. Do you?
