The South Korean tech giant Samsung published a new patent with the title “A Method Of Driving Display With Multiple Refresh Rate And An Electronic Device Performing the Same” and “Electronic Device That Drives A Plurality Of Display Areas Of A Display With Different Driving Frequencies”.
Recently we reported that Samsung shipped nearly 10 million units of its best foldable phones in 2021, marking a 300% increase from the year prior. One of the keynotes is the higher referesh rate. The company wants its device to get different refresh rates for different parts of a phone screen in the future.
For example, a phone can display some content at 120Hz, while other information is refreshed at the same time as – for example – 30Hz. The big advantage: you last longer with a battery charge.
