The Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphone series should integrate a 120 Hz screen, but this display mode will be disabled by default. The screen will run at 60 Hz.

No more day passes without a new leak concerning the Samsung Galaxy S20. This week we had the right to a first idea of ​​the prices of the three smartphones, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra.

Above all, we were able to reveal to you the date of the launch of the three smartphones. Today news concerns one of the features expected from the smartphone.


It is once again thanks to Max Weinbach, of XDA-Developers, to whom we owe most of the leaks concerning the new flagship of Samsung. According to him, the screens of the Samsung Galaxy S20 are by default limited to 60 Hz in the settings. It would therefore probably be necessary to navigate in the settings of One UI to activate the 120 Hz mode and discover the full potential of these screens.

This practice is not new for the South Korean manufacturer. Indeed, the giant has offered for several generations of devices to vary the definition of the display, between HD+ and QHD+.

We imagine that here too, this measure was decided to save the battery. A 120 Hz screen necessarily consumes more than a 60 Hz screen, and it is likely that users prefer by default a better autonomy than a more fluid display.

We imagine that applications, including games, may request the activation of 120 Hz mode. Recently, Fortnite has been updated to offer a 120 Hz mode on the iPad Pro.

In exactly 3 weeks, Samsung will present its brand new range of Galaxy S. It will arrive as Galaxy S20 this year (and not S11, as you might expect). Each model has gradually unveiled over the past few weeks. We know almost everything about the S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, and even the Galaxy Z Flip. It’s the new foldable phone from Samsung that has illustrated itself several times on the Web.
