Xiaomi Ready with 120Hz Refresh Rate for its Flagship Smartphones

The display screen refresh rate is the latest rage among the smartphone makers. If it was the OnePlus 8 Pro yesterday, it is Xiaomi today with the news coming out that the Chinese major is testing out a 120Hz OLED display internally. The expectation is that the 120Hz refresh rate may become the new normal, particularly among the flagship/premium devices of the popular smartphone brands. The trend may be witnessed in 2020, market forces feel.

MIUI Source Code Reveals the Support for 120Hz

It was while reviewing the source code of the MIUI 11 Beta that the researchers stumbled upon the entry for a screen refresh rate of 120Hz. This new trend of providing high refresh rates was started by OnePlus, with its OnePlus 7, 7T and 7T Pro models being heavily advertised for their 90Hz screen refresh rate breaking from the 60Hz that used to be the norm. Now, the company is likely to bump this to 120Hz in its next flagship, the OnePlus 8 Pro, as and when it is released in 2020.

Xiaomi’s Model Plans for Higher Refresh Rate Not Clear

Xiaomi keeps launching its devices in different sub-brands like Mi and Redmi. At this point, having established that the Chinese company has the 120Hz OLED display refresh rate technology up to its sleeve, it is not clear which of its next models will be fitted with this feature. Some speculate that it could be the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4. You have to wait to get a confirmation on this. The last serious rumor on this new phone was that there would be an under-display front camera for selfies. That could be a breakthrough for the company since there are not many phones with this feature.

Smartphone makers would want their flagship smartphones to be certified for water and dust resistance. Going for the popup camera arrangement prevents them from getting this IP68 certification. If there has to be no hole or notch on the front screen and obtain IP68, then the embedded camera under the display is the only option. The technology has to be perfect to ensure enough light is sent to the sensor below the display.
