Google’s Own Code May Explain Why The Pixel 4’s Smooth Display Isn’t Always As Smooth As You’d Like

Google apparently Will Not Allow Pokemon Proceed, Google Maps, Waze, also WeChat use the Pixel 4″Smooth Display” feature to run at 90Hz, according to an explicit blacklist that XDA Developers’ Mishaal Rahman and found in evident source code to your Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

We have not yet been able to test ourselves if these apps are unable to operate at 90Hz, but Android Police verified that Google Maps and Waze only conducted at 60Hz on its own Pixel 4.

For Waze, Pokémon Go, and Google Maps, it’s not Surprising that Google might have locked them to a more 60Hz. All of those programs are already big battery drainers, since they simultaneously use your phone’s GPS, mobile radio, GPU, and keep the display on for lengthy periods of time. Running at 90Hz would, in concept, suck battery faster. (And Niantic apparently capped Pokémon Proceed at 30 fps earlier this season , anyhow.)

WeChat may not be, it will not create as much sense Allowed to run at 90Hz, but Google’s origin code for the Pixel 4 apparently says that the program has”poor performance” in the higher refresh rate.

Smooth Screen has not gone over. Earlier this week, a few Redditors figured out the the Pixel 4’s refresh rate falls to 60Hz if its display reaches 75 percent brightness or lower. Google told us That upcoming software updates will empower 90Hz”in more brightness conditions,” in order for the future, you could have the ability to use Smooth Display when the screen isn’t as bright.

We might now know why Google disabled 90Hz at lower brightness, incidentally: commits seen in Android 10’s source code by XDA Developers say it is because you would have seen the display flicker because the refresh rate varies. Here’s a more technical explanation from one of the commits:

Let us hope that its software updates and are followed with by Google Finds a way to allow you to utilize Smooth Display And, maybe someday, let the programs which are locked at take Full advantage in a way that is battery-friendly of the display that is 90Hz
