If you weren’t already aware, the MEMC chip is used in higher-end televisions to simulate higher frame rates, by adding custom frames between actual ones. It stands for Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation. Further, MEMC is a smart algorithm that allows for frame insertion and interpolation layer. It can process a lower frame rate video up to a simulated 120 frames per second. The MEMC is handled by an independent chip on the display itself and will happen in real-time.

The chip used in the OnePlus 8 Pro will do something similar, it will allow 30fps videos to be simulated to 120fps. We heard about this back when we first heard about the OnePlus 8 Pro using a 120Hz refresh rate panel. This recently revealed a new small clip by the brand that explains the difference created by the MEMC chip.

“The #OnePlus8Series’ custom MEMC chip intelligently inserts frames into your movies, TV shows and sports games for maximum smoothness,” says the tweet. While the brand mentioned just the OnePlus 8 series, it is possible that the MEMC chip will only come to the higher-end OnePlus 8 Pro. Whether both phones will get the feature is something we’ll only find out later.
