The latest leak about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has appeared online courtesy of noted tipster Ice universe. There are very little details to be had about the future flagship smartphone in the latest tip, but it seems the device will come with a display that offers a 120 Hz refresh rate. However, there is a little bit more to it than that straightforward figure.

Ice universe has always been a good source for leaks or tips about upcoming Samsung products, although the leaker does have a habit of offering information with somewhat enigmatic phrasing at times. For this occasion, it has been revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (stylized Note20) will give users the opportunity to enjoy a screen with a healthy 120 Hz refresh rate. That’s not a massive surprise, as we already know that the Samsung Galaxy S20 series will be fitted with 120 Hz displays.

But this is where the famous tipster gives us more details, even if they are as vague as you like. Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will have “a more fine-tuned 120 Hz refresh rate technology”. Of course, that could mean many things, including Samsung coming up with yet another marketing term just to try to differentiate almost like-for-like products. “Advanced 120 Hz” or “Super 120 Hz” could be on the cards; until Ice universe clears up this current mystery we can only speculate.

Unsurprisingly, some wags have joined in with the discussion about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 enjoying “more fine-tuned 120 Hz refresh rate technology”. One suggested it could be “120.01 Hz” while another came up with “120 Hz²” – and quite a few commented on the fact it sounded like the costly Galaxy S20 and its 120 Hz refresh rate had not been fine-tuned and therefore would not be worth a purchase if the Galaxy Note 20 was round the corner (same release year at least). No doubt this particular mystery will be made clearer in the near future.
