Recently, Samsung released the latest flagship Note 20 series of the Note series. Among them, the top-of-the-line Note 20 Ultra is the most popular. Note 20 Ultra will be Samsung’s first mobile device with a variable refresh rate panel. The refresh rate panel will allow the Note 20 Ultra’s refresh rate to switch between 10-120.
The most intuitive experience of this technology is that it will effectively reduce the power consumption of high refresh rate screens, which is also a problem faced by current high refresh rate mobile phones. The traditional high refresh rate screen cannot switch the refresh rate at any time. It can only be fixed at 90Hz or 120Hz. Only a few models realize dynamic switching through software functions, but the effect is not ideal, so it cannot be reduced very well. Power consumption will still face battery life issues.
Samsung’s latest variable refresh rate (VRR) panel can switch the refresh rate of the screen at 10/30/60/120Hz, and adjust the resolution according to the user’s current display interface. For example, in a static page, the refresh rate will change. Reducing it to 10 or 30 Hz reduces the power consumption of the screen. On video, game and other pages, the screen will run at a high frame rate, bringing a smoother viewing experience.
Taking into account issues such as screen flicker that may be caused by switching the refresh rate, the new generation of VRR panels can also automatically adjust the brightness difference to avoid image flickering when the refresh rate is adjusted. In addition, in order to maintain the fineness of the screen even at low refresh rates, Samsung still needs to optimize the phone’s hardware and software in depth, so the actual display effect is not yet known.
The above is the information currently revealed by Samsung, which is undoubtedly good news for users with high battery life requirements.
