OnePlus has launched its ultra-premium flagship smartphone — the OnePlus 7 Pro last month and it had been the fastest favorite smartphone across the tech-savvy world. The primary reason for that would undoubtedly be the new 90Hz 2K display, which the company had brought to its OnePlus 7 Pro’ OLED panel. Of course, other factors such as top tier specs and its price bracket are also the reasons for it being the most convincing smartphone — the 6.67-inch with refresh rates of up to 90Hz is certainly the pick in the lot.
The company had given options to the display settings on the OnePlus 7 Pro with which you can set between either 60Hz or the new 90Hz, by the way, default would be set to 90Hz. Regardless of these settings even though the display settings are set to 90Hz, OnePlus automatically shifts to 60Hz when you are using apps such as Camera, YouTube or the conventional calling app, because using 90Hz display while using them would be pointless as it is meant for enhanced gameplay sessions or for smoother travel across the interface. And, also YouTube supports up to 60Hz refresh rates alone.
Folks at XDA Developers have discovered that the 90Hz refresh rates on the OnePlus 7 Pro can be utilized for every app on the device using a simple ADB mod. They have found that the OnePlus 7 Pro actually has three refresh rates, which include — the regular 60Hz, the ‘auto’ 90Hz refresh rate, which the company ships with the device as a default setting, and a new ‘true’ 90Hz refresh rate that can be enabled through an ADB command.
The report had also indicated that they had approached OnePlus for comment for hiding the actual 90Hz display and the company had recommended to not use this 90Hz display all the time in every app since it is not necessary and the benefits are said to be limited. Further, enabling this would inevitably affect the battery life as this feature utilizes substantial battery capacity, henceforth OnePlus had put up the ‘auto’ 90Hz refresh rate as default for the flagship device.
OnePlus had further explained on how the OnePlus 7 Pro 90Hz refresh rates work, and according to the company, large scale games, videos and camera use 60Hz display refresh rates. Besides, the 90Hz compatible games would utilize the higher refresh rates, and further, there are apps like Chrome which usually run on 60Hz refresh rates, but on the OnePlus 7 Pro, the company is making it run on 90Hz. The report further indicates that there are specific apps that are whitelisted to run on 90Hz refresh rates.
So, if you are enthusiastic of the 90Hz display to run on OnePlus 7 Pro on every app, head over to the source link below on how to enable it through the simple ADB command, bear in mind, enabling it would have limited benefits and significant battery utilization. As stated earlier, the default 90Hz display that is enabled on the OnePlus 7 Pro is adequate as many apps don’t need the high refresh rates. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
