Force 120Hz Refresh Rate in Picture in Picture or Split Screen view

In this guide, we will show you the steps to force a 120Hz refresh rate in Picture in Picture and Split Screen view on your Samsung device. Having a 120hz refresh rate is no longer considered royalty because even the mid-rangers now support it. However, its implementation has always been questionable, to say the least. While it does gives us the option to toggle between standard and high refresh rates, but we are generally left out of granular controls- such as the inability to control refresh rate on a per-app basis.

Adding to the misery, the OEM tends to place restrictions under certain circumstances wherein the peak refresh rate would automatically dwindle down to 60Hz, even though you have explicitly instructed your device to be at 120Hz at all times. For instance, in the case of Samsung, the fresh rate will never remain at 120hz when using the Picture in Picture or the Split Screen view. But we managed to find a nifty workaround that should help you bypass this limitation. So without further ado, let’s check it out.
