The Google Pixel 7 Pro has a brighter screen than the one on the Pixel 6 Pro
According to the source code, the Pixel 7 Pro goes as bright as 600 nits in manual mode, 100 nits higher than the highest brightness in manual mode on the Pixel 6 Pro. In Auto mode, the peak brightness on the Pixel 7 Pro is 1,000 nits compared to 800 on the Pixel 6 Pro. The Pixel 7 Pro could eventually use the Samsung S6E3HC4 display panel, which is a generation newer than the display used in the Pixel 6 Pro.

The Pixel 7 series will also reportedly feature a native 1080p mode that will extend battery life. Many smartphone users say they can’t tell the difference between watching content at 1080p and 1440p, although this writer disagrees. The latter offers a slightly sharper image that some smartphone users, such as yours truly, can discern.
Pick up the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
It will be interesting to see how many Pixel 6 series owners will give Google a second chance later this year when the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro go on sale. It would be nice if Google rewarded those who supported the 2021 Pixel models by offering a super trade-in deal for the Pixel 7 line. Although it would be nice, we don’t hold our breath.
And for those wondering whether a buggy phone for the second generation model can be turned around significantly, the answer is “yes” and we can also give you a nice example. One of the most buggy phones of all time—if not the buggiest—was the BlackBerry Storm. The first touchscreen BlackBerry, the virtual QWERTY, was supposed to mimic the feeling of typing on a physical keyboard.
Can Google make the necessary changes to the Pixel 7 series?
When BlackBerry designed the phone, it only featured a single sensor in the center of the QWERTY, causing the clickable keyboard to fail. Taps further away from the center of the QWERTY could not be registered correctly. Every unit sold by Verizon has reportedly been returned. When the follow-up model was designed, four sensors were included that covered the entire keyboard, giving the keyboard a much better performance. The clickable QWERTY “SurePress” technology worked as promised, giving users the feeling that they were typing on a physical keyboard.
Consumers may be willing to give Google that second chance, but if it doesn’t deliver the goods this time, the company will face serious problems with its image.
