Not far, Google updated its two next-generation Pixel phones, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Although Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL come with many new features. Their display leaves much to be desired from flagship budget phones of Google.
At the moment, according to a new report, the company’s next-generation phones will have a user’s restricted hidden brightness mode.
Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones are now able to hold out the highest brightness of about 450 nits. With this feature, users find it hard to see the contents on screen in sunlight, XDA developers reported. Anyhow, Google’s recently released Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL can reach up to the maximum brightness level of 610 nits.
According to the report, the company has intentionally capped the highest brightness of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. This will preserve the valuable battery life of these two smartphones. Moreover, there is no switch, or a toggle button available with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
So by utilising the button, users can use their phone at its highest brightness level. Users are not able to attain the maximum brightness level on Google’s newly launched phones. Even on placing the adaptive brightness setting to the highest setting of the smartphone as well.
Users can utilise this 610 nits of brightness on Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL only at the time of playing HDR videos. Besides that, users will need to muck with the phone’s OS to get an embedded approach to turn on the feature manually.
According to the report’s indications, when the maximum brightness levels are enabled on Google’s two phones for a long time this drained the battery life rapidly, so to preserve the battery life of the Pixel 4 phones, Google has capped the maximum brightness level mode.
Earlier this month, the company pushed an update to Pixel 4 that makes the users utilise the flat display feature at brightness level lower than 75 percent. Before that, when the brightness immerses below 75 percent, the Google Pixel 4 involuntary changed to 60Hz display.
