They should compromise and add a WQHD 90hz option to have a more fluid display and a high resolution

  • Khurram

They can update this feature at any later update if not at launch so don't worry about wqhd at 120 hz.

QHD+ @120HZ = LIKE 3 hour battery life. Lol. Good idea binning that option.

The solution to this dilemma is simple: make it the default setting but give the users choice to select 120 Hz@QHD+ , with a warning of doing so at their own peril. No muss no fuss.

This is just to conserve battery life(out of the box).
I am sure in a few weeks after launch, some xda tweak would be out on YouTube Spreading like wildfire showing you how to make the s20 run 120hz at QHD resolution.

By the way, the foldable OLED screens used by Motorola Razr flip phone does not have anything to do with Samsung.

Oppo, Vivo, Huawei and Xiaomi are rushing to deliver the 1st under-the-screen camera, which depends on a special-purpose OLED screen technology. These four companies actually follow 4 different paths to tackle this issue. This is an OLED technology Samsung doesn't have, according to an Oppo engineer.

Huawei and Oppo have worked with all OLED panel supplier on various special projects. According to Huawei and Oppo, in the field of special-purpose OLED technology, Visionox is way ahead of Samsung.

Is it not possible to add a 90Hz option to allow the user to be able to decide the level of smoothness/battery usage they prefer or is it due to hardware limitation?

OnePlus' technology of QHD@120Hz is not from Samsung. Samsung still doesn't have the technology to run QHD screen at 120Hz properly. OnePlus 8 Pro will have the best display in the history of smartphone, the likes of which Samsung has not yet been to able to attain. In 4 (or 5) critical areas of the display technology, OnePlus8Pro will set the new industry standards, the details of which will trickle down in the coming weeks.

By the way, Xiaomi will deliver its first smartphone with QHD@120Hz in the coming weeks. In the 2nd half of the year, Xiaomi will deliver the first screen running @144Hz. (Xiaomi doesn't use Samsung technology, if you want to know.)

No, defensively the difference is noticeably. Maybe this is the year for Samsung to promote this phones between people with vision difficulties and profit the low sales to give them some gifts. At least, those phones will end serving for a good purpose.
