ASUS ZenFone 8 series might have a 120Hz refresh rate display

In the teaser posted by ASUS on Twitter, the company flaunts the smoothness of the display of the ZenFone 8 series smartphones. While ASUS hasn’t mentioned the refresh rate, the video shows a silhouette of a smartphone (probably one of the ZenFone 8 series devices) and it has “Smoothness” doodled on its display with 120 ‘o’ letters. It strongly suggests that the ASUS ZenFone 8 series will have a 120Hz refresh rate display. It is significantly higher than the 90Hz refresh rate display that the ZenFone 7 and the ZenFone 7 Pro offer. That being said, it is no surprise that the ZenFone 8 series might have a 120Hz refresh rate display as this has become the bare minimum for flagship smartphones nowadays.
