Screen Refresh Rate Will Likely Become A New Specification Battlefield For Smartphones
In the past, the specification warfare of smartphones was mainly CPU, RAM/ROM capacity, photography, new communication standards (such as 5G support) and so on. Recently, in the flagship market, the “screen refresh rate” indicator has attracted more and more attention from consumers. In the past, most smartphones used screens with standard 60Hz. Multi-mobile phone manufacturers have introduced models with up to 120Hz screen refresh rate, and such changes have the opportunity to become the new battlefield for the next mobile phone specification battle.
In the earliest mobile phone with a super high refresh rate, it was the first generation of Razer Phone released in November 2017. The main product is designed from the perspective of e-sports mobile phone. In addition to the CPU adopting the most advanced Qualcomm S835 at that time, it is equipped with a 5.7inch 1440p UltraMotion 120 Hz display screen.
This year, the most famous mobile phone with a high refresh rate of more than 60Hz is the ROG Phone II released by Asus. It is equipped with a screen with a super high refresh rate and a response speed of 120Hz/1ms. It is also the main mobile phone in the gaming market. Sharp, which has its own display technology, also announced the SHARP AQUOS R3 with a 120Hz refresh rate screen.
According to the news released by XDA Developers, Google will be able to have a 90Hz high refresh rate screen on the Pixel 4 released in October. It is also reported that Apple is considering next year (2020) with 120Hz on the new iPhone. Besides that, many mainland Chinese brands have also announced the release of 90Hz new phones.
