Question Gboard forcing 60hz while keyboard open

Hi all,

I've had my new OnePlus 9 Pro for around a day now (coming from my broken OP7Pro) and am so far loving it, besides some minor issues.

One of them being that whenever the stock Gboard keyboard is open, whatever app I'm in seems to drop from 120hz refresh rate to 60hz.

I've confirmed the problem by showing the FPS counter (in dev options) and testing Telegram and WhatsApp.

I can force 120hz for these apps in AutoHz, but that seems like a bit of a hacky workaround and I was hoping that there's a better solution. Any ideas anyone?
