We saw Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra devices, the Tab S7 range, the new gear watches and a fleeting mention of the Galaxy Fold 2.

Most devices featuring 120 Hz-capable displays on the market can operate at either 120 Hz or 60 Hz.

"High-definition video streaming and gaming are expanding their capabilities in line with 5G commercialization, creating a widespread need for display panel technologies that can enable greater power savings", said Ho-Jung Lee, Vice President of the mobile display product planning team for Samsung Display.

At the slowest setting, Samsung claims it can use just 60 percent of the normally-required power, while other displays can't adjust without starting to flicker. "This will free up time for other smartphone operations", Lee added. A higher refresh rate permits it to feel more responsive utilizing a pen or playing versatile games and parchment much more easily, yet as individuals with 90Hz telephones have learned, it can likewise put more strain on the battery. Samsung Display's new backplane** technology eliminates flickering for operating frequencies as low as 10Hz. The engineers say that this implementation saves you around 22% power in general use while the 10Hz mode saves up to 60% compared to current panels.

The world's leading mobile OLED panel maker said its Adaptive Frequency technology has been applied to Samsung Electronics Co.'s latest high-end flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which will be released on August 21.
