I’m not sure any Google devices are known for having extra bright displays. It wasn’t a feature of Pixel or Nexus devices in the past, but if a new discovery about Google’s upcoming phones is correct, we could be looking at quite a change with it. Pixel 7 Pro.
Thanks for digging the code Of XDA Mishaal Rahman, it has been mentioned that the Pixel 7 Pro seems to be in line to use Samsung’s S6E3HC4 display panel. For most, that chain of letters and numbers is not a squat, but for our phone savvy, this means that the device should be able to increase brightness in both normal viewing mode and high-brightness mode.
In terms of numbers, during normal viewing, the Pixel 7 Pro can cap at 600 nits, while the Pixel 6 Pro is only capable at 500 nits. However, if high brightness mode is enabled, users can get up to 1000 nits, 6 Pro is currently pushing 800 nits. That’s quite a jump. Rahman estimates that if the Pixel 7 Pro is in high brightness mode with an APL of less than 100%, we could be looking at an absolute peak of 1200+ nits.
The Pixel 6 Pro has become a great phone after a few months of updates. I am currently using it as my daily with Android 13 Beta. It’s a fun and smooth phone, though, its display brightness is below 75% which I noticed immediately from other phones. I look forward to this change in the Pixel 7 Pro.
