One UI 6.0 Brings High Refresh Rate to Screen Recording

The One UI 6.0-based Android 14 rollout is being made accessible to eligible Galaxy devices by Samsung. With every beta rollout, several new features are added to the list. Samsung has upgraded One UI’s screen recorder capability with the ability to capture films at a frame rate faster than 60 frames per second (fps) in the fifth major One UI 6.0 beta update for the Galaxy S23 series. Offering displays with high refresh rates is not something that Samsung has never done, as all of its Galaxy Premiums have 120Hz screens, whereas the mid-range lineups come with 90Hz or 120Hz panels, even with 60Hz panels in case the specification doesn’t come with high refresh rate screens.

However, there may be a change as the built-in screen recorder on the newest Android 14 and One UI 6.0 beta software that is accessible through the Galaxy S23 series can now shoot movies at up to 120 frames per second. This will result in smooth playback as soon as the recorded video is played on the screen. Another feature is that users are allowed to switch between 60 and 120 fps manually under the screen recording settings. Here, the frame rates that are being used for screen recording will change between 60 and 120 fps, according to the system-wide high refresh rate as per enabled or disabled under the settings. This can be checked under the device’s Settings, under the Display menu.

One UI 6: Samsung drops support for these Galaxy devices

For instance, the Galaxy S23 is tested, one with the high refresh rate turned and the other with it turned off, and shared as a YouTube video. As a comparison, the video recorded with a high refresh rate offered a smooth result in terms of scrolling the browser, and in the scenarios of switching between the applications and the home screen, the animations were pretty good. No major differentiation was found between the two recorded videos with different refresh rates, as there is a 60 fps video limit for YouTube. This feature isn’t something that was requested for a long time, but Galaxy users whose models are eligible under Android 14 One UI 6.0 and have a high refresh rate display may experience it.
