OnePlus 12 Uses HyperRendering To Ensure All Games Run At 120FPS

I love my Redmagic 9 Pro, but I was very disappointed when I learned that not all Android games run at 120FPS. It was a letdown as I am a PC gamer used to experience games at a higher refresh rate. OnePlus is aware of this issue, too. That is why the OnePlus 12 utilizes something called HyperRendering, which basically ensures that all the games you are running on your phone can run at 120FPS.

The OnePlus 12 could theoretically run Genshin Impact at 120FPS using frame interpolation

During the launch event, the company talked about its latest Trinity Engine, which has something called HyperRendering. This new technology will let you crank your games up to 120 frames per second, even if they are capped at 60 frames per second. Before you get excited about this feature, remember that this is achieved using a technology called frame interpolation, which manages to create additional frames between frames of a lower frames-per-second render. This does sound very advanced, but the technology traces back to the 70s. Of course, the modern version of the OnePlus 12 will work much better than before.

Aside from the OnePlus 12, the Galaxy S24 series also uses frame interpolation. The Samsung flagships, however, are doing it to convert regular videos into slow-motion videos, filling in the frames using artificial intelligence. Looking at the games, there could be a performance impact as the GPU will have to work harder to output 120 frames per second.

This is where the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 comes in and supposedly takes care of everything. I am really hoping that the chipset has enough power to allow this frame interpolation to work seamlessly, so gamers can have a better time enjoying a smoother gameplay experience. At this point, 120FPS on all games does sound like a bold claim, but we cannot confirm it until we see the real-life performance of the new phone.

During the launch event, OnePlus focused on how the new OnePlus 12 will deliver better performance than some of the phones the company has previously worked on. This is not only because of the change in the CPU but also because the company is trying to return to its roots. Even the most specced out phone version is still more affordable than its competitors, bringing back the foundation that the company relied on many years ago. Of course, hardcore enthusiasts might believe there are some cut corners, but based on the information I have checked so far, I doubt that the phone manages to lag behind its main competitors in any way.
