Although Google has now launched Android 10, this is not a big deal for the company. After all, the new product launch will not be held until November. This year’s Google new product launch conference is, of course, the release of the Google Pixel 4 series. In fact, the whole series of pictures and configurations of the series have been leaked in advance. What makes many users interested is that the Google Pixel 4 series high refresh rate display has also been leaked, and this time it is leaked in the Android source code.

In the process of mining Android source code, developers found the screen display code submitted by Google. The function of the code is in what kind of situation and what kind of refresh rate is displayed. For example, the current code shows that Google plans to provide refresh rate adjustments in the developer options, supporting device screen refresh rates of 60Hz or 90Hz. Interestingly, Google will also support detecting the time of video playback. It can dynamically adjust the screen refresh rate according to the behavior of playing the video to improve the battery life. The point, of course, is that the code for Google Pixel 4 shows that the device can adjust the refresh rate, which means that the device’s screen refresh rate will also be 90Hz.

The leaked message also shows that both the larger Pixel 4 XL version and the slightly smaller Pixel 4 will use a 90Hz OLED display. The 6.3-inch Google Pixel 4 XL version has a screen resolution of 1440P, while the smaller 5.7-inch Google Pixel 4 has a screen resolution of 1080P. Different device sizes mean that there is a difference in battery capacity, the 5.7 version also uses the 90Hz refresh rate.
