The first phones by Samsung to support over 60Hz are the recently introduced Galaxy S20 trio. They supports 120Hz screen refresh rate. However, unlike other phones with high refresh rate screens, there’s no middle ground – it’s 120Hz or 60Hz. That’s the case officially, but it turns out that the phones have a hidden 96Hz option.
How To Enable 96Hz Refresh Rate Mode On Samsung Galaxy S20
The feature can be enabled using ADB, but a member of XDA forum, created a much more convenient solution – an app.
It provides you two toggles in the status bar that allows you to switch between 96Hz and 120Hz.
Note that like the 120Hz mode, only 1080p+ resolution is supported at 96Hz. You can use TestUFO to verify that the refresh rate changed. Presumably, the 96Hz mode uses less battery power than 120Hz, but that hasn’t been tested yet.

Another thing to consider is that some Reddit users complained of some issues with the unofficial 96Hz mode on Exynos-powered versions of the S20 phones while others reported that it works fine. Since it’s unofficial phone tricks, you proceed at your own risk.
