The support for DCP-P3 colors on OnePlus 5 ‘s screen indicates that it will be delivering digital cinema like view experience with support for vibrant greens and reds. Compared to traditional digital video, the digital cinema offers a wide range of high quality of color spectrum which exceeds sRGB (standard RGB) color space created by HP and Microsoft. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones already support DCI-P3 color space and Apple calls its “Wide Color.”
