On February 11th, Samsung will hold its next Samsung Unpacked event and we expect to see the company's first-half 2020 flagships greet the light of day. Those models include the entry-level Samsung Galaxy S20 (6.2-inch display), Samsung Galaxy S20+ (6.7-inch display) and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (6.9-inch display). Originally, it appeared that Sammy would grace the displays on all three phones with a 120Hz refresh rate. This updates the display twice as fast as traditional smartphones' 60Hz rate.
Now, this doesn't mean that Samsung won't return the 2K 120Hz refresh rate and Director's View to the final firmware. But suppose it doesn't? Remember, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also expected to feature a 120Hz refresh rate and according to the rumor mill, so will some of the 2020 Apple iPhone models (most likely the "Pro" variants). The pressure is on Samsung to return this option by the time the Galaxy S20 line is unveiled next month.
