With One UI 4.1.1, Galaxy Z Fold 3 users can adjust main and cover screen’s refresh rate separately
Recently, Samsung started rolling out the Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 update for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone users. It’s an incremental feature drop update, which brings additional new features and optimizations for large-screen devices.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone has two displays – the cover screen (folded) and the main screen (unfolded). The Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 update brings a new feature for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which provides you with even more control over the refresh rate of both screens.
As mentioned in the update changelog, the One UI 4.1.1 update enhances the functionality of the refresh rate control menu, enabling the adjustment of the refresh rate of both displays separately. The settings can be found at the same place where it was on the One UI 4.1, however, the same refresh rate won’t be applied on both panels automatically.
The motion smoothness options section now shows that the refresh rate settings will be applied on the cover screen, if your Galaxy Z Fold 3 is in folded condition. On the other hand, you will be needing to unfold it if you are needing to alter the refresh rate of the main screen.
Most of the time, we use the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from the cover screen and unfold it while watching movies or playing games. Using this feature, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 users can save the battery life of their foldable phone by picking different refresh rates for both screens separately.
Before upgrading to One UI 4.1.1, there were no separate refresh rate settings on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

One UI 4.1.1 – What’s New
