Oppo Find X3 Pro receives a software update that allows an adaptive refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz. Oppo was initially annoyed by the availability of an adaptive refresh rate for the Find X3 Pro, although it was not provided during the official launch last week. The smartphone is designed to recognize which application is running in the system in order to adjust the screen refresh rate accordingly. Companies, including Samsung, offer a similar experience to their flagships, although the ability to reduce the display refresh rate to 1Hz is something distinctive.
Like announced through a post on Weibo, the adaptive update of the refresh rate of Oppo Find X3 Pro aims to reduce energy consumption by 50 percent. The update essentially helps to adjust the refresh rate according to the applications used on the phone to ensure optimized results. For example, if you use an e-reader application or view some of your photos, the Oppo Find X3 Pro can reduce the refresh rate to 1Hz. However, this will not be the case if you play a game on the phone.
YouTube channel Creator Studio has published video that gives us a quick look at how the adaptive refresh rate of the Oppo Find X3 Pro works. This indicates that the default screen refresh rate is 1Hz when the app drawer is visible. However, the refresh rate switches between 24Hz and 60Hz when playing video and ranges up to 90Hz when playing some games.
Samsung has offered a similar experience to its own Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy S21 series. However, the South Korean giant does not provide as low a refresh rate as 1Hz and offers 10Hz as a minimum.
Oppo Find X3 Pro comes with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display technology, which helps dynamically change the screen refresh rate. The same technology in particular comes on OnePlus 9 Pro too, and also promises to offer identical adaptive refresh rate which can range between 1Hz and 120Hz.
With that in mind, the Oppo Find X3 Pro goes on sale in China tomorrow. The phone will also reach Europe by the end of March. However, there is no word on his debut in markets, including India.
