Why 120 Hz High Refresh Rate is Greyed Out and can’t be selected?

Please note that as of the time of writing this article 120 Hz High Refresh rate is not available for WQHD+ and is the reason the option is not available or greyed out for users who have that resolution selected.

See as shown above setting resolution to FHD+ or 2400 x 1080 which is 1080p is the only option on which 120 Hz work on as of now.

Users however have asked Samsung for the option on WQHD+ or 3200 x 1400 and they are considering it for future updates despite greater battery draw being the reason for disabling it at that resolution.
