In May this year, Asus released the kernel source code and official bootloader unlock tool for the Asus 6Z, which allows users to flash custom ROMs with ease. The company recently rolled out a new update for the phone, which added August 2019 Android security patch, support for 18 smarter key functions and more. Now, the flagship device from Asus has received support for 75Hz display.

XDA reported that Kdrag0n‘s Proton Kernel for the Asus 6Z phone is “bringing over the ability to set the display to refresh at 75Hz.” Proton Kernel is a custom kernel for the flagship phone. In order to flash a custom ROM, you’ll need an unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery. It is also important to note that higher refresh rate does have risks associated, so proceed on your own risk. To recall, the Asus 6Z was launched in India in the month of June.
