- Simply open Note s20, and then go to Settings, About Phone, and you will see the option of Software Information there.
- Tap on the option of “Build Number” at least 7 times, so that the hidden Developers Option menu is available to you. The screen will now ask for your pattern/pin, to make sure that it is you who is accessing the Developers Options menu.
- Go to Setting, Developers Options, and using toggle the USB Debugging option. Now, open your laptop or PC, and download the ADB binaries from it.
- Extract them to a folder on your desktop, and then open command prompt or a Terminal Window.

As per neowin.net, following are the two commands that you have to input, to change the display refresh rate:
- adb shell settings put system peak_refresh_rate 96.0
- adb shell settings put system min_refresh_rate 96.0
