Samsung Galaxy Note 20 to Have Variable 120Hz Refresh Rate LTPO Display

One of the hot smartphone trends this year has to be high refresh rate displays in smartphones. This year we have seen a tremendous increase in the popularity of 90Hz displays among flagships and even some mid-range devices. Some devices are also having 120Hz refresh rate displays while others go as high as 144Hz. With respect to high refresh rate display, we have a new leak on Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series. It is rumoured that Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will feature impressive new variable 120Hz Refresh Rate LTPO display technology. We also have information about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series screen sizes. Continue reading this article to know more about Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series new display technology, its screen size and what is LTPO Display and function of LTPO Display!

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series will have a better Display than S20 Series

The Samsung Galaxy S20 series was the company’s first smartphones to have 120Hz refresh rate OLED displays. However, the only problem with the devices as it can only operate 120Hz at FHD+ (1080p) resolution. The maximum WQHD+ (1440p) resolution with 120Hz is not possible with the display. This is likely due to the massive power consumption at that setting required. Samsung is trying to mitigate battery drain as much as possible on these devices. However, the company may have solved this problem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series. A new leak reveals that the device will have LTPO Display technology. What is LTPO display?

What is LTPO Display?

According to a new leak reveals that the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+ will feature LTPO Display. The LTPO stands for Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide. This LTPO Display is a backplane technology which will be used with newer OLED panels. This technology will result in substantial power savings of up to 15%. This is possible because LTPO Display enables support for true variable refresh rate switching.

What is LTPO Display Function?

The support for variable refresh rate switching is key here. Currently, Android smartphones with high refresh rate OLED panels can only switch between a few preset display modes. For example, Galaxy S20 Series can switch between 60, 90 or 120Hz. True variable refresh rate switching would allow the device to ramp up and down the refresh rate in a much more dynamic manner (from 1Hz to 120Hz). For example, the always-on display will use 1Hz.

While gaming or other activities, it will ramp up or down the refresh rate. Finally improving power consumption in the process. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will be the first smartphones with an LTPO-backed OLED panel. Previously LTPO display was used in the two Razer Phones and Apple iPad Pro. But those displays were LCD screen while Galaxy Note 20 will have support variable refresh rate on OLED screen.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series Screen Sizes

According to the source, the Galaxy Note 20 will have a 6.42-inch display. It will reportedly have a resolution of 2345 x 1084, leading to an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, same as last year. Whereas the Galaxy Note 20+ will boast a 6.87-inch panel. This year, the Galaxy Note 20+ will have a slightly taller 19.3:9 aspect ratio with a display resolution of 3096 x 1444. The leak also says that there won’t be any Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy Fold 2 will be your Ultra.

A screen with a variable refresh rate could undoubtedly give the Galaxy Note 20 an edge over competing devices. Apple this year may not use LTPO display tech in its 2020 iPhones rather having only ProMotion Display. Finally, this leak should be taken with a grain of salt. Samsung is still testing this technology before implementing in the final device. If Samsung manages to implement it successfully, then this will make the Galaxy Note 20 stand out for sure.
