Our smartphone touchscreens might look and feel the same, but they’re not. Touch sampling rate refers to the frequency in which your phone’s touchscreen display can register your input. This is something Samsung will be improving in the Galaxy S24 displays.
Ice Universe has posted a tip on X where they claim that Samsung will be improving the displays of the Galaxy S24 series. This will come in the form of increased touch screen response where they might be upping it by 10%. This should result in the phone feeling more responsive to the touch and also giving the illusion that it’s “faster”.

The expected refresh rates for the displays on the Samsung Galaxy S24 series are 120Hz. Improved touch sensitivity could dramatically affect the overall experience. The Galaxy S24 Ultra model could benefit further from this as it could make the use of the S Pen feel a lot more fluid.
Samsung will be officially announcing the Galaxy S24 series on the 17th of January. New AI features will be launching with the handsets, and we can also expect to see Samsung returning to the use of the Exynos chipset for some markets. If you’re considering the Galaxy S24 as your next phone, check back with us next week for the official details.
