Galaxy S11 rumored to have 120Hz display

  Galaxy S11 rumored to have 120Hz display Samsung might be pulling out all the stops with its next flagship phone.A 120Hz display will indeed be one of the new features coming to the Galaxy S11, according to a report from SamMobile on Monday, citing "highly reliable sources." This rumor has been circulating for some time now as a hidden menu option in the Android 10 menu for the Galaxy Note 9 allowed users to switch from the default 60Hz to the faster 120Hz.

OnePlus hasn't confirmed its next flagship phone will feature a 120 Hz display , but it looks likely. It would be an odd move for OnePlus to so brazenly talk about the technology publicly and not use the 120 Hz tech on at the least the OnePlus 8 Pro.

Lastly, OnePlus claims its screen can hit 1000 nits peak brightness for HDR content, has a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, and supports 10-bit color. It ’ s already an issue with 90Hz screens, so it ’ s going to be even more of a concern with 120 Hz . OnePlus has promised to hold an event in Shenzhen

OnePlus is starting to dribble out details for its next phones, and it's starting with the feature you probably care about the most: the screen. The company's upcoming, Samsung-made 120Hz Fluid Display (not pictured) is faster than the 90Hz of the 7 series and thus better at handling motion, but that's just supposedly the start. The AMOLED panel packs a slew of custom design choices that might help it stand out against the ROG Phone 2 and those precious few other 120Hz handsets on the market.

The Fluid Display touts an "exclusive optimization solution" that reportedly renders frames 7 percent faster, and it boasts a 240Hz touch sampling rate to make it that much more responsive to your finger taps. You can also expect smoother-looking video playback at 60Hz or 120Hz, too, thanks to the same kind of frame insertion technology used in many modern TVs (this comes at the same time as TV makers are courting people who hate motion smoothing, but never you mind that).

The OnePlus 8 tipped to arrive with a 5G version

  The OnePlus 8 tipped to arrive with a 5G version More info has leaked out on the next OnePlus flagship – and it sounds like 2020 could be a big year for the company.Android Police has the scoop, based on a source "familiar" with the OnePlus roadmap. The 5G capabilities would allow the phone to support Verizon's super-fast mmWave network.

After touting its 90 Hz displays on the OnePlus 7 line, with its next phones OnePlus seems poised to up its game once again. As a result, Lau writes that the new display has "has yielded significantly better results" compared to rivals when measuring "click response, scroll response, and accuracy."

Considering its current phones have 90 Hz displays , it ' s not surprising that OnePlus would go with a 120 Hz display for the next model. It remains to be seen what resolution the display will be, but going by the current-gen Pro model, it should ideally be a QHD+ panel. The Asus ROG Phone 2 (Review)

You can likewise expect better color accuracy through "professional tuning" that promises a Just Noticeable Color Difference ratio of less than 0.8 (slightly better than the Galaxy S10's 0.9, for context), 10-bit color that's automatically calibrated at the factory and a 1,000-nit peak brightness.

We wouldn't be surprised if 120Hz AMOLED displays appear in more phones in 2020 (Apple and Samsung are rumored to be making that leap). What OnePlus claims to be special now may be relatively commonplace by the end of the year. Still, the Fluid Display shows that very fast refresh rates are coming to mainstream phones before long, and sets a benchmark for what to expect.


Purported OnePlus 8 specs leak contains a few surprising revelations .
The first wave of 2020 flagship Android phones is here, with the Galaxy S20 and Xiaomi Mi 10 being the first phones to rock Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 865 processor, which comes with built-in 5G connectivity. These phones also feature insane specs when it comes to RAM and storage, with the 16GB/512GB Galaxy S20 Ultra being a phone that has no rival. It's also extremely expensive, retailing for $1,599. But the S20 won’t be the only high-end handset hitting stores this spring, and a much cheaper flagship is right around the corner.
