Google Pixel 6a has a secret function

Google Pixel 6a

Google Pixel 6a display can be changed to 90 hertz using this workaround.

For those looking for a quality mid-range smartphone at a reasonable price, the Google Pixel 6a is a top pick. It has some remarkable hardware, including a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 60Hz refresh rate and Google’s Tensor system-on-chip.

However, it has just come to light that the Pixel 6a has actually been hiding a 90Hz display that can be activated via hack. The Lunarixus, a Twitter user, has developed a hack that enables the maximum refresh rate of 90 Hz.

It is unclear whether Google is intentionally limiting the frame rate of the Pixel 6a or whether the phone really supports a 90Hz display. The Lunarixus, on the other hand, claims that the monitor’s refresh rate is not being artificially increased beyond 90 Hz.

It’s a strange hack because it’s unsafe for the phone, so most users won’t try it. You must jump through several hoops to unlock the Pixel 6a’s 90Hz display, and those with a locked carrier may not be able to.

First, enable debugging mode and OEM unlock. Unlock the bootloader, then flash a customised Android 13 beta and a changed boot image. Complex and doesn’t produce a glitch-free 90Hz display.

Some users said the mod made their screen black, while others saw a green tint.

Modified ROM

A modified ROM would make increasing Pixel 6a’s refresh rate easier. Google may have planned a hardware update for the phone, but it’s improbable. We wonder if Google would provide a hardware update soon now that users know the phone can show a 90Hz refresh rate.

Midrange Pixel 6a has a 60Hz display. Our review praised OLED. High-end phones like the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have 90Hz refresh rates for smoother navigation and gaming (which also goes up to 120Hz).

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6a share a Samsung-made OLED panel, which prompted the social media controversy. It’s strange that Google lowered the Pixel 6a’s display if it’s not overclocked to 90Hz.

The 90Hz hack isn’t supported by Google or Samsung and could cause damage, says developer Kuba Wojciechowski. We wonder if Samsung or Google will announce the Pixel 6a’s faster refresh rate. A 90Hz refresh rate could improve the phone’s display.
