What does 120Hz screen refresh rate mean?

The refresh rate is a measure for the number of images displayed per second every time the screen refresh and it is measured in Hertz (Hz), so the 120Hz screen refresh rate means the screen can return 120 images per second every time it refreshes. However, most smartphones today are equipped with 60Hz screens.


Basically, the higher refresh rate means less motion blur, more fluid experience and clearer image quality, which matters greatly when you are playing games.   

What’s the visual difference between 60Hz and 120Hz screen?

In fact, the difference between the 60Hz screen and 120Hz screen is not noticeable for an average person. However, when we observe them via slow motion lens, we can see that the 60Hz screen has been obviously split, there is a visible gap between the font shadow and the actual display area, and the character residual shadow of the previous line has overlapped with the word of the next line, and the sense of jelly has been observed in the hidden appointment. On the other hand, the 120Hz screen still looks integrated, and the changes in the picture are very consistent.

Does every app support 120Hz screen refresh rate?

It’s of course not. You should note that not all apps support the 120Hz refresh rate. Presently, most apps on the market only supports 60fps, so you can only enjoy the 60Hz screen refresh rate even your device supports 120Hz screen refresh rate. In other words, if you want to take full advantage of the 120Hz screen, the apps you use must support the 120fps.  

Does the 120Hz screen refresh rate cause faster battery drain?

Yes, the screen refresh rate will affect your phone’s battery life. The higher screen refresh rate will cause faster battery consumption.


Redmi uses the mode of intelligently dynamically adjusting the frame rate, which means that not all applications will turn on the 120Hz refresh rate. That’s why Redmi K30 adopts intelligently dynamically adjusting the frame rate and not turn on the 120Hz refresh rate for all apps. The main purpose of this is to reduce power consumption and balance the phone's battery life.
