Custom Refresh Rate Option for Apps Now Available in OnePlus 11 with ColorOS 14



oneplus coloros 14

Currently, OnePlus devices offer users the option to set their smartphone screen refresh rate to either High (120Hz) or Standard (60Hz) through the device settings.

However, Ashok Mor recently highlighted a new feature which is a custom refresh rate setting option for individual apps. This allows users to assign a specific refresh rate to a chosen app. This feature is exclusive to the OnePlus 11 running ColorOS 14, as you can see in the screenshot available in the below tweet.

There is growing anticipation that this feature might be coming into the OxygenOS 14 update. If this feature comes with OnePlus devices running the OxygenOS 14 update, this improvement could prove to be even more beneficial than the existing settings.
