Pixel 7 Pro’s screen will be brighter than Pixel 6 Pro’s


Despite the fact that the S6E3HC4 panel has the same 3,120 x 1,440px resolution and 10-120Hz refresh rate as Google’s previous S6E3HC3 panel for the Pixel 6 Pro, what has truly changed? The answer to the question can be found in the Android 13 betas’ source code.

The new display screen will have a higher brightness. The Pixel 7 Pro will have a manual brightness setting of 600 nits, which is an increase of 100 nits over the Pixel 6 Pro’s.

The display’s maximum brightness will rise to 1,000 nits in Auto mode from 800 nits. Keep in mind that these numbers refer to an all-white panel with APL set to 100 percent. At a lower APL, the brightness may possibly reach 1,200 nits. This is a more common circumstance.


Some extra characteristics for the display panel, such as HDR10 and HLG images, are also described in the source code. However, HDR10+ or a reduced refresh rate are still nonexistent. However, a native 1080p mode is available, which should assist save battery life.

Google says the Pixel 7 series will be available “soon,” but there’s no word yet on when exactly it will happen (it will be in October, according to rumors). We don’t know yet if the smaller Pixel 7 will get a display upgrade as well.
