However, the Redmi K20 Pro users might not witness a big improvement when switching to 75Hz. While a higher refresh rate offers a smoother transition, it also drains the battery much faster. One will mostly notice an improvement when the same display is compared with a 120Hz panel. The latest information on the Redmi phones comes from Gizmochina.
