Android 13 will offer unprecedented energy savings on the Pixels: here’s how
Thanks to the first public betas released so far we have already known the news that Google will introduce on smartphones with Android 13. Among these, one more has been found unpublished.
The animation you find in the gallery shows the novelty in question. This is about the ability to set a lower display resolution on the Pixel 6 Pro, switching from quad HD + to full HD +. This should clearly allow for a energy saving with the same use. The display is notoriously one of the most consuming aspects on smartphones.
The new option that you see in the gallery was enabled by installing the Pixel 7 Pro display drivers on the Pixel 6 Pro. This suggests that the novelty will come with Android 13 when the new Pixel 7 launches. It will clearly be available on devices that offer a higher resolution of full HD +, therefore not on Pixel 6 or Pixel 6a.
