Yesterday's hottest news contained some details of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20. We were told that these new devices would feature new LTPO display technology that would allow variable refresh rates of 120 Hz that would improve the battery life of the devices would, and apparently that wasn't entirely true.
Note 20 Update – while the Note 20+ stays LTPO and 120 Hz, the Note 20 will be LTPS and 60 Hz. This makes sense since LTPO costs more and should appear first on premium models. You can make 120 Hz with LTPS, but it uses a lot of power. LTPO is the best implementation for 120 Hz.

It appears that the new LTPO displays will be part of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series, but only in the + variant. New information says that the base model will use an LTPS backplane and there would be no 120H update rates. The device would be limited to a refresh rate of 60 Hz to avoid unnecessarily draining the battery. Ross Young is again the source of this leak, and he also states that the base model could be significantly cheaper at the expense of some features, although this would place the device in a Note 10 Lite area.
