How to enable 120Hz refresh rate on Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (One UI 2.5)

The refresh rate is the number of times the screen is refreshed every second, so the higher the refresh rate, the faster the screen responds. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 only supports a fixed rate of 60Hz refresh rate but the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra supports a maximum of 120Hz refresh rate to provide smoothness on the screen.

The improved display refresh rate allows for clearer and smoother video quality when playing games with fast action and watching videos. The comparison of 60Hz and 120Hz is as follows.

The screen will be refreshed more times when you watch super high-quality animations and will be refreshed fewer times when you read articles that do not require a high refresh rate.

Users of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra can switch between adaptive 120Hz and the standard 60Hz from the settings. If you choose to stay on the standard refresh rate, it’ll save you extra battery life. Also, read the complete instructions given below.


How to enable 120Hz refresh rate:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap Display
  3. Select smoothness
  4. Choose your desired option.
  5. Apply

Note: Higher refresh rate consumes extra battery than the regular 60Hz
