Shortly after the Pixel 4a went on sale, there were reports that Google might be working closely with Samsung/BOE to develop a new machine with a 6.67-inch/120Hz high refresh rate display. In 2014, the company partnered with Motorola to launch the Nexus 6 with a 5.96-inch screen. However, The DSCC points out that Google’s new 5G screen could be available in 2021.
Obviously, a larger screen can help increase the competitiveness of the Pixel smartphone in the marketplace. While it’s not clear whether it’s an LCD or OLED panel, the latter is more likely, given that both screen manufacturers have significantly increased OLED capacity this year.
There are also rumors that the upcoming Pixel 5 smart will feature a 5.78-inch screen, so Google doesn’t seem to be rolling out a 6.67-inch/ 120Hz high-refresh-rate display in 2020.
While Google has yet to launch a model that supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz, the Pixel 4/4 XL released last year already comes with a 90Hz OLED screen.
If it launches next year, it’s likely to be part of the Pixel 6 family. It is said to use a Google-specific chip and put it into Samsung’s production.
If you don’t have a chance to use Google’s custom chips, the Pixel 6 or the Qualcomm SnapDragon 875/875G or other, weaker chipsets.
