The Smooth Display feature on Pixel 4 smartphones only works when the screen brightness is greater than 75%

After the announcement of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, many observers noted that the 90 Hz screen in the new Google smartphones works

not like the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. Now there is information about what the problem is.

What is known

The editor-in-chief of the XDA-Developers publication found outthat the Smooth Display function is only active if the screen brightness is set above 75%. In all other cases, the picture refresh rate is automatically reduced to the standard 60 Hz. Google has already confirmed this information.

According to the company, this is not a mistake.The manufacturer deliberately reduces the display frequency to optimize the battery life of smartphones. Naturally, many users did not like this solution. Therefore, Google promised to release an update that will increase the brightness threshold. The firmware should be released in the coming weeks.
