Pixel 6 Pro hack extends battery life with a subtle change.

Google Pixel 6 Pro

Android’s next hardware trend involves displays. After modders obtained 90Hz on a Pixel 6a, another screen hack has emerged online. If you install a modified kernel on your Pixel 6 Pro, you could receive a Pixel 7 Pro feature months before launch.

XDA Forums user Freak07 has upgraded the Pixel 6 Pro’s Kirisakura kernel to rescale the display to 1080p on stable Android 13 releases. It opens the same resolution menu we’ve seen in Pixel 7 leaks, allowing users to save power by scaling down their screen. This release sticks with a modified Pixel 6 Pro driver, giving greater performance and fewer issues than a prior version.

Brightness scaling, dynamic refresh rates, and colour and contrast options are all present. Black displays when the refresh rate is displayed and overlapping icons are problems, however this mod seems ready for daily drivers. Some glitches signal the feature isn’t ready for the Pixel 7 Pro, but there’s still two months to solve it.

You’ll have to test whether it affects battery life. Samsung fans love resolution scaling for its perks. It’s a subtle improvement that will add screen time between charges. Freak07 has published an in-depth look at the modifications made with version 4.1 of the Kirisakura kernel on XDA Forums.
