Sony confirms 120 Hz display mode support for the XZ Premium
Earlier this month, some members of the well-known XDA Developers community spotted a 120 Hz display mode option in Sony's Android 8.1 AOSP build. Sadly, the toggle for this display mode was not functional. Today, Sony finally came up with an answer that makes it all clear.
"Please note that the [XZ Premium] supports 120Hz in terms of video decoding capability but we have opted to strike a balance between power consumption and consumer benefit (in terms of frame rate)," reads the email that a Sony representative recently sent to Android Authority.
Sony might decide to enable this feature in the future since the 120 Hz refresh is considered to be one of the best features of the Razer Phone and could become an essential ingredient for tomorrow's handsets for gamers. For now, the gaming smartphone market is still in its infancy, but the new devices like the ZTE Nubia Red Magic or the Xiaomi Black Shark are showing that a very interesting future might lay ahead. In the long run, maybe we could even see Sony giving it a try as well. Would you like that?
