An XDA contributor claims to have found an option to switch a screen's refresh rate from 60 to 120 hertz (Hz) in MIUI 11. This suggests that there is an upcoming Xiaomi phone with this spec in development. This would leap-frog the new industry standard of 90Hz nicely.
Deirdre O Donnell,

The XDA has reported on the apparent discovery of a 120Hz option in MIUI 11's Display settings. The alleged new breakthrough is found in this Android 10 skin's code rather than openly available in the UI. The user kacskrz claims to have implemented it on-screen on his personal modified device, however.

According to some new screenshots, the resulting menu item does appear to summon radio buttons that allow the user to switch between 60 and 120Hz (while passing on the 90Hz option found in many newer phones). However, as no existing Xiaomi devices (by default, at least) have this technology, the latter does not of course work. Then again, this find is a potential indication that their next generations may have this ultra-high refresh rate. This spec is only present in the Asus ROG Phone II to date.

On the other hand, the new XDA article does not display the alleged code in question, as it often does when posting on stories based on app decompliations or analyses. However, should this post prove accurate, it would indicate another potentially crucial advantage for the future of Xiaomi displays. This is already boosted by reports of under-screen cameras, not to mention the successful release of the Mi Mix Alpha and its wraparound panel.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
