The live images of the upcoming Google Pixel 7 Pro have been leaked online months before its expected launch. Earlier, the Pixel 7 Pro prototype was listed for sale on eBay and Facebook Marketplace with live images and all.
And, now it is reported that developers have been able to use the display driver of Google Pixel 7 Pro on the Pixel 6 Pro, which defaults to 1440p and can be downgraded to 1080p. According to the shared image by reliable Android whistleblower @MishaalRahman, there will be a setting option in the Android 13 system to reduce the 1440p QHD+ screen resolution to 1080p FHD+.
As we can see in the demo video after the user clicks the 1080p resolution option, the screen will briefly black out, and then all display content will become larger. The developer also confirmed that this is an actual resolution change at the driver level, not just a scaled resolution set via ADB or other means.
As for why you want to change the resolution, it may be for a better gaming experience. Similar to the Windows system, players can reduce the resolution to make the game frame rate higher and run more smoothly.
As per previous reports, the upcoming Google Pixel 7 series smartphones are going to carry major upgrades in terms of camera, processor, and software. This series will officially launch in October this year.
