At a recent Samsung Members survey, more than half of the participants cherished Samsung’s 120Hz display as their favorite Galaxy show characteristic. Samsung has relay made a massive improvement in terms of its display quality and refresh rate. This has resulted in a vivid & vibrant display with a higher refresh rate on-board.
The refresh rate is the frequency at which any display updates the images in a second. A smartphone has a display with a 60Hz refresh rate which means the display updates the image 60 times a second. The refresh rate of any display is measured in hertz (Hz).
A display with a higher refresh rate (Hz) translates into smoother visuals. A 120Hz refresh rate as seen on the latest Samsung Galaxy S20 FE updates an image 120 times a second. This allows for a smoother user experience with less motion blur. The change is apparent if you are using two phones with a 60Hz and a 120Hz refresh rate each.
A higher refresh rate allows for smoother transitions no matter if you are simply scrolling or streaming a video or gaming. It has a mind-boggling impact on gaming since you can spot your enemies quicker before your opponent sees you.
Samsung started shipping its smartphones with a higher refresh rate a few years ago and recently, clocked to 120Hz. You can find a 120Hz refresh rate display with Galaxy Tab S7/S7+, Galaxy S20 series, and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. The latest Samsung Galaxy S20 FE sports a Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz display which is next-gen.
Here’s a GIF that represents refresh rates ranging from a choppy 12 Hz to 120Hz in a cool animation. AS you can see, the 12Hz refresh rate produces choppy visuals. But as you go forward with 24Hz, it is improved twice as much. A 120Hz refresh rate is 10 times faster than a 24Hz refresh rate. No doubt it produces less motion blur, smoother and crisp visuals, and transitions.
Samsung conducted the Samsung Members survey between July 29, 2020, and August 14, 2020, with over 10,000 participants spread across six countries.
