A key ingredient for a smooth gaming experience is the refresh rate of the display. While high-refresh-rate screens were a thing of gaming PCs, the trend has slowly crossed over to mobile phones. From 90Hz, the flagships of the industry have moved to 120Hz this year. You got handsets like iPhone 11 series, S20 series, OnePlus 8 Pro, and more. The obvious next step is 144Hz and there are already a few candidates out there.

While we have a dedicated article on everything you need to know about the high-refresh-rate tech, just know that higher the refresh rate (measured in Hertz/Hz), the display will refresh the on-screen image or content that much faster. Everything will seem smooth and snappier to you. You’ll feel less eye fatigue.

At the same time, this comes at the cost of battery life. Moreover, there is not much content available to leverage the 144Hz, so most videos and games might stick to a lower frame per second.

But all that’s not going to stop the trend of high-refresh-rate displays on smartphones, at least in the case of flagships for now. The brands will market it as a USP and milk it as much as possible.

Currently, Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 765, and MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chips support 144Hz refresh rate displays. So, the devices mentioned below will be running on any of these three. Having cleared that, let’s get down to the list itself.
