It looks like a new security update for Google’s Pixel 6 devices has been put on hold for now. Instead, Google Pixel 6 users will get a separate update this week that focuses on fixing potential GPS problems on the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6a.

The Google team announced that starting today a new firmware update will be rolling out to all Pixel 6 devices. The update will be rolled out in phases for all three devices, and as per the official description, the update fixes a GPS issue where phones can experience “GPS location failure” in some cases.

In addition, Google also clarified the delay of the August 2022 Android security update, saying that the update will be released in the next few weeks.

The Google Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6 have been out for a while, and the Pixel 6a recently started shipping. The Pixel mid-range device was originally on sale for $449, but it went through several promotions, one of which also dropped to $399.

The Google Pixel 6a is powered by a self-developed TenSor processor and features a 6.1-inch Full HD+ 60Hz OLED center punch screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The front-facing 8-megapixel selfie camera supports off-screen fingerprints.

There is an LED flash and two cameras on the bar on the back of the fuselage: a 12.2-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Other highlights include stereo speakers, IP67 dust and water resistance, 5G connectivity, and a built-in 4410 mAh battery that supports 18W charging.

Published

According to The Verge, the Google Pixel 6a uses a 6.1-inch OLED display that supports a 60Hz refresh rate, but there is a way to unlock the 90Hz mode.

Twitter user TheLunarixus has created a mod that unlocks 90Hz mode on Pixel 6a phones, and they’re working on a custom ROM that will make it easy for any Pixel 6a owner to open the increased refresh rate.

The test found that the Pixel 6a can unlock the 90Hz mode through this MOD. It’s unclear if the Pixel 6a’s display panel actually supports 90Hz, or if it’s overclocked to get a faster refresh rate.

DNS has learned that to unlock 90Hz mode on the Pixel 6a, users need to enable debug mode and OEM unlocking in settings, load the bootloader, manually flash the Android 13 beta, disable parts and check to flash the modified vendor_boot mirror.

It should be noted that some users found that the mobile phone had a green screen problem after applying this MOD. Developer Kuba Wojciechowski has warned that Samsung may not rate the Pixel 6a’s display at 90Hz, which is likely just overclocking.

Generally, smartphones below 500/600 euros hardly offer high-level photographic performance, apart from Google devices that manage to achieve above-average results thanks to the company’s powerful image enhancement algorithms.

It is therefore not surprising that the newborn Google Pixel 6a achieved excellent results in the photographic tests conducted by the DxOMark platform.

Google Pixel 6a proves to be an excellent smartphone for photos

In the ranking drawn up by DxOMark with the best smartphones for taking pictures in the price range between 400 and 600 euros, the Google Pixel 6a took second place with a score of 130, just behind the more expensive Google Pixel 6.

It should be noted that new smartphones from Google priced at one thousand euros, such as the Huawei P50 Pro (144 points) or iPhone 13 Pro (137 points), also occupy the third place in the same price range. The iPhone SE 2022 and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro are on par with 12 points less than the 5G.

DxOMark rewards good photo and video quality, in particular, the sharpness of objects in the background, good performance combined with good HDR work, faithful colors, and effective video stabilization.

Platform-wise, the zoom, abundant noise in shadows, loss of quality in details compared to Google Pixel 6, and quality of photos can be improved in low light conditions.
