Samsung Galaxy S11 could come with a 120Hz display

It could also come with 25W fast charging

It could be launched in Q1 of 2020

Samsung’s next flagship smartphone isn’t due for a launch until the first quarter of next year. And yet, a bucket-load of leaked and speculated information about it pours in from online leaksters and tipsters every single day. In a series of tweets published just a few hours ago, popular leakster Ice universe revealed that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 could sport a display with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. One of the screenshots shared by the tipster also shows that the Galaxy S11 has been certified in China for 25W fast charging.

In the tweets and images shared by Ice universe, we see a screenshot that’s allegedly taken on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 running One UI 2 Beta. You may remember that One UI is Samsung’s proprietary Android-based software. The screenshot shows a hidden setting in the phone that enables refreshing of the screen not at the usual 60Hz but at 120Hz. That’s much faster than the 90Hz refresh rate used by the display on models like the Realme X2 Pro, OnePlus 7T, and Google Pixel 4.

According to Ice universe, the refresh rate options available in One UI 2 Beta are: “1. Turn off the high refresh rate mode and keep 60Hz. 2. Turn on the high refresh rate mode and keep 120Hz. 3. Turn on the high refresh rate mode and switch automatically between 60Hz and 120Hz.” The tipster is assuming that the Galaxy S11 will get the 120Hz panel based on the screenshots taken from the beta version of One UI 2. There’s a chance that this may not happen, so we recommend you take this news with a pinch of salt.

Ice universe says the Samsung Galaxy S11 “has been certified in China, using TA800 charger,” which means it should get 25W fast charging. This piece of unconfirmed news goes in the tub of information we already have on the phone, which includes the possible screen sizes the Galaxy S11 will come in (6.2/6.4 inches, 6.7 inches, 6.9 inches) and the new patented ‘Space Zoom’ feature it could come with for lossless zoom.
