Samsung’s flagship phablet Galaxy Note series kept up with its tradition of bringing around some of the best smartphone technology in the world this year as well. The latest Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ did not disappoint one bit and are doing incredibly well in the market. However, while the Note 10 phones are incredible on their own, they aren’t much of an outstanding upgrade over Galaxy Note 9. And with some new news coming to light, Samsung may make the same mistake again with the Galaxy S11.
Ice Universe, the popular industry tipster who recently leaked the upcoming S11’s new display, has now come forward urging its followers to demand a 90Hz display in S11 from Samsung. It’s noteworthy that Samsung faced quite a backlash from users when it released both the galaxy S10 series, as well as the Note 10 series with 60Hz displays. And at a time when other brands have already moved to 90/120Hz displays which provide a game-changing experience, Samsung seems to be on the verge of making the same mistake again. In the new statement, Ice Universe said that almost every mobile phone brand is customizing the 90Hz/120Hz refresh rate screen. The tipster further asked followers what they had to say to Samsung, and that Ice would pass on their thoughts and suggestions to Samsung.
Why a 60Hz display is outrageous
While a 60Hz display shows a backward stance in the industry when all other major brands have already moved ahead, there’s something even more outrageous about all of this. What makes this news shocking is that Samsung already makes 90Hz displays of its own! And instead of inculcating them in its own flagship devices, it sells them off to rivals. The much talked about 90Hz display in the OnePlus 7 Pro is made by Samsung.
Samsung has done it before
In early 2019, Samsung received a satirical ‘Best selfless dedication award’ from Ice Universe. Samsung sold its UFS 3.0 storage and 90Hz display panel to the OnePlus 7 Pro. Moreover, it also sold the remarkable ‘waterfall’ curved screens to Huawei and Vivo. And guess what, it even sold next-gen 64MP and 108MP camera sensors to Xiaomi, while selling its customers a 12MP sensor that’s over three years old from the Galaxy S7 in the new Galaxy S10. And there’s no stopping Samsung – It is all set to sell its industry-leading Note 10 Plus display to Apple for the upcoming iPhone 11 Pro.
Recommend to give Samsung the “Best selfless dedication award”
It gave UFS3.0 to OnePlus
Give the 90Hz 2K screen to OnePlus
Give the waterfall screen to Huawei, vivo
Give 64MP to Redmi, realme
Give 108MP to Xiaomi
But the Note10 uses a 12MP, FHD screen. What a great dedication！

While the Galaxy S11 is reported to be an incredible phone with ground-breaking new camera technology, 5G support, and charging technology that’ll make the 45W charging look slow, it remains a question why it’ll compromise on a 90Hz display when it’s being sold to its rivals. Samsung reminds us of Red Skull from Knowhere in Endgame – “I guide other to a treasure I cannot possess.”
