Traditionally, we were all used to 60Hz display refresh rate, until 90Hz arrived. Then some OEMs stepped up to 120Hz, and yet others pushed as high as 144Hz, like display on the Xiaomi Mi 10T and 10T Pro, those were 144Hz refresh rate. Trust me, 90Hz is smooth enough, especially when talking about what your eyes can notice under real life usage. But some OEMs thinks it could even be better and higher as far as display refresh rate is concern.
Today Weibo’s top tech tipster have revealed that the upcoming Red Magic 6 Pro from Nubia might be the first smartphone to go above 144Hz mark set by the Mi 10T-series. According to him, the Red Magic 6 Pro will debut with a whooping 165Hz refresh rate, and probably the first in the industry.
While this sound interesting, it is important to note that there are more to smartphone display than how fast and smooth the screen scrolls. The most important part of a phone’s display to me aside color vibrancy is the brightness. For me, I like it large, vibrant and bright more than how smooth it scrolls.
The recent E4 AMOLED screen from Samsung, same display tech used on the Xiaomi Mi 11 is a most welcome move that need more attention and improvement than higher refresh rate, especially in the arear of power consumption segment; but we’ll just wait to see what ZTE and Nubia can offer on the Red Magic 6 Pro. A recent rumor have also suggested that the device will debut with 4500 non-removable battery.
