Guide: What is the update frequency and why is it so important?

Hello to all friends of OPPO and Realme fans, as you well know the Realme X2 Pro was recently presented. Among the features that have made so much talk about this device, we find a display equipped with a refresh rate (refresh rate) at 90 Hz , compared to the traditional 60 Hz with which most smartphones in circulation are equipped.

But why do we discuss so much about the number indicating the frequency of updating and above all what is it?

The update frequency and therefore the relative value expressed in number, indicates the number of times a screen redraws an image. It is measured in Hertz (Hz). Smartphones with a higher refresh rate will have lower motion blur and noticeably clear image quality. This type of display can only be seen in the leading devices, but given the evolution of technology and the consequent price drops, we can expect this feature soon even on the cheapest smartphones.
