ASUS ROG Phone 3 has a 160 Hz screen stealth mode

Last week Asus presented one of the most spectacular Android phones so far this year. He Asus ROG Phone 3 It could boast of being the most powerful terminal that we can buy right now, of having one of the best autonomies and having the highest screen refresh rate.

The latter is not exclusive to this model since 144 Hz have also been seen in other gaming mobiles. What was not seen was a way to activate the 160 Hz mode.

Activating 160 Hz on ASUS ROG Phone 3

As we tell you in the analysis, this terminal has a configuration for its tremendously large screen. Regarding the refresh rate, we can choose between 60, 90, 120 and 144 Hz depending on what we want to do.

The surprise has come to discover that both the hardware and the software of this mobile phone support a maximum refresh rate of 160 Hz, something that we have not seen in any commercial mobile. In fact, Asus itself does not advertise it.

160 Hz screen stealth mode

To activate this mode we must execute an ADB command having our mobile phone connected to the computer. If you do not know how to use this method, you can follow this guide. The command is as follows:

adb shell setprop debug.vendor.asus.fps.eng 1

At XDA, which is where they have managed to activate this mode, they indicate that one of the most effective ways to check the difference in fluidity with the new mode is by installing the Fluid Simulation app.

However, there may be doubts as to why Asus has not activated this serial mode on its new mobile. It is possible that it is due to an exaggerated use of the battery, although this mobile phone stands out for its autonomy. It may also be because the screen has not been accurately calibrated for this mode, something that could be fixed by a software update.

If you want to do a test you can use the command that we have given you above since even if the option for 160 Hz is activated it does not force them to stay permanently so you can always change to the other four models that are available as standard .
