Companies like Razer have been creating phones with 120Hz refresh rate displays. That is almost as high as ever before, but it seems that Xiaomi is exceeding the limit with the Redmi K30 5G since the company has demonstrated the phone with an update frequency of 144Hz, which makes it the higher refresh rate than We have seen on a smartphone to date.
In general, 144Hz refresh rates can be found on monitors aimed at players, so it is interesting to see it on the screen of a smartphone. However, it remains to be seen whether this is necessary or not. After all, a higher refresh rate means that the phone needs to do much more work.
In turn, this could also cause the phone battery to run out unnecessarily due to the higher refresh rate, in addition, there is also the question of whether people can distinguish the difference, especially between 120Hz and 144Hz, where the difference is marginal . However, at the same time we can understand where Xiaomi comes from.
At this time when our hardware is at its peak, small differences, such as the frequency of updating a screen, may be sufficient to influence customers on their brand. We should also note that Xiaomi is not alone in this, since Nubia is also working on a smartphone with a screen that has a similar refresh rate.
