An Update For Galaxy Note 9 Has Hidden Option For A 120 Hz Refresh Rate

However, do not put your hope up just yet. There is no way a smartphone can reach that refresh rate if its screen is not built to support it

A hidden upcoming feature in the software of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been uncovered recently and it relates to the refresh rate of the screen.

It appears that users can have the 120Hz with the screen of Samsung's phones. This is buried in the OneUI 2.0 update’s Beta release.

However, users of Galaxy Note 9, do not put your hope up just yet. There is no way a smartphone can reach that refresh rate if its screen is not built to support 120 Hz. This is why Samsung hides the feature there in the first place.

As what was found out in the OneUI Beta 2.0’s Chinese and Korean versions, users of next year’s Galaxy phones will have three options. One is to keep the 60Hz rate for good, the other is to upgrade to 120Hz but there is no way you can go back to 60Hz, and the third is to allow an automatic switch between the two refresh rates, meaning you give the phone the ability to choose which one to use at given times.

This is similar to what Google has done for its Pixel 4 phones. However, in this case, the device will switch between 60Hz and 90Hz. This feature is not exactly welcomed by users of the phone. So it appears that Samsung will be extra cautions not going down that same road by giving users the choice to choose what they want.

For now, Galaxy Note 9 smartphones do not let users change the refresh rate. It still runs with the 60Hz, the standard rate for phones releasing at the same time with it, except for models designed for gaming.
