Pixel 6 Pro mod promises extended battery life by making a small tweak you may not notice – Digikar

📱 2022-08-17 00:00:00 – Paris/France.

It’s a feature we expect to see included by default on the Pixel 7 Pro later this year.

Playing with screens seems to be the new trend in Android hardware. Shortly after some adventurous modders ran 90Hz on a Pixel 6a – with the potential to reliably recreate it – another screen hack surfaced online. If you’re looking to save power with your Pixel 6 Pro and want to install a custom kernel for your device, you might get access to an exclusive Pixel 7 Pro feature months before launch.

ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY

As spotted by Mishaal Rahman, XDA forums user Freak07 has developed an updated version of the Kirisakura kernel for the Pixel 6 Pro that allows the display to scale to 1080p on stable versions of Android 13. It’s not just a hack – it unlocks the same resolution menu we’ve already seen in the Pixel 7 leaks, allowing anyone to save power by shrinking their screen. Although a previous build relied on a leaked Pixel 7 Pro driver on older hardware, this build sticks with a tweaked variant for the Pixel 6 Pro, delivering better performance and fewer bugs.

It’s worth scrolling through the entire Twitter feed to see the status of the mod, but the brightness scaling, dynamic refresh rates, and color and contrast settings are all there. There are a few issues – black screens when the refresh rate is displayed, occasional overlapping icons – but overall it looks like this particular mod is ready for use on everyday pilots. Some of these issues suggest the feature isn’t ready for prime time on the Pixel 7 Pro, but with two months until launch, there’s plenty of time to fix it.

As to whether this will have any real impact on your battery life, you’ll have to try it yourself. Due to its inherent advantages, resolution scaling has long been a fan-favorite feature of Samsung. It’s a change you’re unlikely to notice in day-to-day use, but will add extra screen time between charges. To get started with the Kirisakura core, grab your Pixel 6 Pro and head over to the XDA forums, where Freak07 has posted an in-depth review of the changes to version 4.1.
