POCO X3 NFC, which Xiaomi will launch on October 15, 2020, offers features that will pamper mobile gamers. This includes having a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sampling rate of 240 Hz. These two features will surely be welcomed by mobile game players as they can ensure their victory while playing or “playing” together.
For mobile gamers, smartphones with such features offer a much better experience, for example in high-speed games where they have to aim or shoot quickly. The high sample rate offers a combination of highly sensitive controls and faster response.
Touch sample rate is simply defined as the responsiveness of the screen to commands from a fingertip touch in one second and then reacts to the next image. With a high touch sample rate, a smartphone reacts faster to user orders and shows the next image on the screen faster.
A smartphone with a touch sampling rate of 240 Hz offers a 33% better response compared to other flagship smartphones in Indonesia.
The term touch sampling rate is different from the refresh rate, which measures how many images can be updated (updated) per second. For this reason, if a smartphone screen has a refresh rate of 120 Hz, it means that the screen can update 120 images every second.
Compared to the 60 Hz industry standard, this means that smartphone screens with 120 Hz capability can display smoother image movements due to higher refresh rates.
The presence of a touch sample rate is closely related to the refresh rate as the tier increases with a smoother display and faster response. The screen can also be a determining factor in winning a gaming session.
