The Google Pixel 7 Pro will reportedly not feature the same display panel used in its predecessor, the Pixel 6 Pro. Rumors suggest that the Pixel 7 Pro could be equipped with Samsung’s new S6E3HC4 panel. This new panel is said to have the same 1,440×3,120 pixel resolution as that offered by the Samsung S6E3HC3 panel used in the Pixel 6 Pro. However, the recently revealed Android 13 beta source code suggests that the new display will be brighter than its predecessor.
alleged piece of code was spotty by tipster Mishaal Rahman (@MishaalRahman), who points out that if the Pixel 7 Pro goes for the Samsung S6E3HC4 panel, it could be brighter than the Pixel 6 Pro’s display in both normal and high brightness modes. The rumored Google smartphone’s performance is expected to go up to 600 nits in manual mode; 100 nits more than the 500 nits offered by its predecessor.
The Pixel 7 Pro is expected to reach 1,000 nits brightness in Auto mode, which is higher than the 800 nits offered by the Pixel 6 Pro. It should be noted that these parameters are for 100 percent Average Picture Level (APL) – all-white display. Displays usually have a comparatively low APL under normal use. The tipster suggests that the Pixel 7 Pro’s display can go up to 1,200 nits of brightness under normal usage
The tipster further adds that the S6E3HC4 panel may also support features like HDR10 and HLG imagery. It is expected to offer a native full-HD mode for better battery efficiency. The Pixel 7 Pro is supposed to offer a refresh rate of 10Hz to 120Hz.
Previous reports have also suggested that the Pixel 7 Pro, codenamed ‘Cheetah’, could boast of an upgraded display. It also mentions that the handset could be powered by the second generation Google Tensor SoC.
