- A new mod has brought the ability to adjust display resolutions to the Pixel 6 Pro.
- The mod is made possible thanks to Android 13 officially supporting display resolution adjustments.
Android OEMs have offered the ability to change display resolutions for years, but it wasn’t actually supported by Android. Fortunately, Android 13 finally brings this feature, and one developer has managed to unofficially bring it to the Pixel 6 Pro.
XDA Developer Freak07 has updated its Kirisakura-Kernel mod so Pixel 6 Pro users on stable Android 13 can switch from native QHD+ screen resolution to FHD+ instead (h/t: XDA Developers et Mishaal Rahman).
The developer claims that features like brightness scaling and dynamic refresh rate are working fine at the moment. They add that there are no issues with high-brightness contrast or screen tint.
Are you changing your phone’s screen resolution?
It’s not perfect though, as Freak07 adds that there are minor issues (eg overlapping icons or UI issues). Another issue is that the display turns off when changing resolutions while the developer’s “Show refresh rate” toggle is enabled, requiring a reboot.
It’s not an official fix though, so we’d expect a more polished experience if Google decides to bring this option to the Pixel 6 Pro. But we’re always happy to see the community step up and bring a long-awaited feature to Pixels, even if it requires extensive tinkering.
Resolution tweaks have been a regular part of Android OEM devices since the early to mid-2010s thanks to Samsung and Huawei, allowing device owners to lower screen resolution to save life drums. We’ve since seen some brands also offer automatic display resolution adjustments, dynamically switching between resolutions based on a variety of factors. This doesn’t appear to be present on the Pixel 6 Pro mod, but we hope to see it on Pixel phones in the future.
