After the Quad-camera setup and fast charging trend, it’s time for high refresh rate displays on smartphones. Smartphone makers have been launching some excellent devices with high refresh rate displays both in premium and budget segments. While features like high refresh rate displays generally find their way to premium smartphones first, in today’s time, we see the flagship features trickle down to budget devices in no time. So in this article, we bring you a comprehensive list of smartphones with 90Hz, 120Hz, and 144Hz refresh rate display in 2021. So on that note, let’s begin.

Here, we have mentioned all the smartphones from different brands that come with a high refresh-rate panel in 2021. You can click on the link below to easily move to a particular brand.

1. OnePlus

OnePlus is one of the first few smartphone makers that spearheaded the high refresh rate trend in smartphone displays. Even before Samsung, OnePlus brought the OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T and 7T Pro with a 90Hz display panel. And now their OnePlus 8 Pro and 8T come with a higher 120Hz panel and the standard OnePlus 8 comes with a 90Hz display. So if you are looking for overall the best smartphone that comes with a higher refresh rate, I would say OnePlus devices are a great pick.
