Samsung 17 Jan
Bundles of leaks on the Galaxy S20 are coming out from their respective leak points to give you information on what’s coming or what Samsung has planned for its consumers. Max Weinbach from XDA Developers and the very known tipster @UniverseIce have been posting about and sharing knowledge on yet to come Galaxy S20 series back to back. And, now the latest one also joins this long series or say the never-ending leaks on Galaxy S20.
According to @UniverseIce latest tweet, the 120Hz display setting of the Galaxy S20 may not work on the highest resolution. The tipster claims the 120Hz display mode may not work on the highest WQHD+ display and it would rather work with up to Full HD+ resolution. The reason behind the same is equally unknown but it is speculated that this has something to do with balancing the battery life with a high-quality viewing experience.
The higher refresh rates cause more battery drain and have it enabled on the highest display resolution could deplete the battery even faster.
Also, during some power-consuming tasks like gaming, this combination could cause more problem to the battery life. So it makes sense to not let it work on the highest resolution.
This is a general concern and it is likely that more and more manufacturers move away from bringing this functionality to you.
The 120Hz display panel would play a significant role this year as more and more smartphone manufacturers are looking to bring it to their flagship models. The 120Hz would bring buttery smooth navigation for a great scrolling experience.
