The True Tone tech at the moment discovered on Apple units permits the show to dynamically alter to the encircling lighting situations, due to this fact bettering the expertise for higher general studying or viewing. There have been a couple of makes an attempt by OEMs to copy the characteristic lately. The most notable efforts have come from LG and OnePlus however this proof that Google is engaged on one thing related means we might very doubtless see it head to the upcoming Pixel 4.

Within the Settings app in Android Q, there’s a brand new class known as
DisplayWhiteBalancePreferenceController. It checks whether or not the boolean framework worth
config_displayWhiteBalanceAvailableis about to true earlier than permitting the above toggle to be proven in Display settings. It additionally requires that the present shade mode on the Pixel isn’t set to “2,” which corresponds to “Saturated” on the Pixel 2 and “Adaptive” on the Pixel 3.
The digging carried out by XDA discovered a placeholder setting that permits customers to toggle a “display white balance” setting. Toggling on or off truly does nothing, because it seems an additional inside sensor is required. It’s instantly unclear as to what that sensor will probably be.
XDA additionally famous the characteristic doesn’t work when the colour profile is about to “Saturated” as that profile doesn’t look like “properly color managed and not calibrated”. That doubtless implies that the show white stability characteristic doesn’t have the required calibration knowledge to correctly handle any shade changes. It is value noting that there’s nothing else inside Settings or SystemUI tuner for this potential new characteristic.
There is even a string that just about uncovers the sensor, which isn’t present in any present Pixel gadget:
As a standalone meaning nothing however because of the prior naming conventions of “come.google.sensor” in earlier Android builds, this spot might very nicely be associated to a brand new Pixel Four show sensor. It bodes nicely for potential True Tone-like show shade administration and due to this fact a fair higher viewing expertise on the upcoming handset.
What do you suppose? Will we get a show that rivals the iPhone and True Tone on the Google Pixel 4?
