Now you might say to yourself, won’t the 90Hz refresh rate (120Hz on the Pixel 6 Pro) and the 5G connectivity take a big chunk out of the battery life? Well, it appears that the new Pixel 6 line will employ an LTPO backplane which will allow the refresh rate to vary depending on the content viewed on the screen. Video games and other animations will get the fastest refresh rate on each phone while static content like texts and emails will bring down the refresh rate sharply.
We will know more next Tuesday, October 19th, when Google introduces the Pixel 6 series.
