Samsung could opt for a 120 Hz screen for its next high-end smartphone.
Samsung would consider opting for a 120 Hz screen for its Samsung Galaxy S11. A nice evolution compared to the 60 Hz of the current Samsung Galaxy S10.
This Galaxy S11 should also enjoy the Exynos 990 recently unveiled. A SoC that promises about 20% more performance, both CPU and GPU.
A 120 Hz screen for both versions?
Now remains the thorny issue of the division Snadragon / Exynos depending on the country. Recall that for its Galaxy S10, Samsung offers a version under Snapdragon 855 in the United States, Japan and China, and under Exynos 9820 everywhere else. Two SoCs that do not offer the same level of performance, to the advantage of Snapdragon. Samsung could reiterate this practice with the Galaxy S11, proposing an armed model of the Exynos 990 and another with a Snapdragon 865. If so, let's hope that both models will be entitled to a 120 Hz screen.
Note that at the competition, Razer and Asus are the only ones to offer 120 Hz, with their respective Razer Phone II and Asus ROG Phone II. There are 90 Hz screens on some references only: Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, One Plus 7T and 7T Pro. Finally, side gaming, the list of mobile games 120 Hz compatible is now quite consistent.
