Google's Pixel 7 Pro display is revealed to be more power-hungry than other Android phones

With the launch of Google's new Pixel 7 Pro mobile phone, some problems with the phone were discovered. There have been reports that the display on Google's new flagship is a bit of a power drain. A smartphone's display is often one of the most power-hungry components, and manufacturers have been working hard for years to optimize the panel to make it as efficient as possible. On the Pixel 7 Pro, the display seems to be using an extraordinarily high amount of power. Media XDA reported the issue, saying that the phone's display would consume a lot of power when used at higher brightness.

After delving into the power consumption of the machine's display, the Pixel 7 Pro consumes about 3.5-4W at 600 nits of brightness, which is slightly less than half of the maximum brightness. When the high brightness mode is triggered, ie around 1000 nits, the power consumption will come to 6W. They have confirmed with the media who obtained the evaluation machine through different PR channels, and they all have similar problems.

This is a lot more than the screen power consumption of the Pixel 6 Pro, which consumes about 2.9W at 600 nits of brightness and 4W at 800 nits. It's also quite a bit higher than Samsung's latest flagships, with the Galaxy S22 Plus screen consuming just 2W at 600 nits and 4W at 1,000 nits.

It's unclear if the standard Pixel 7's display will have the same high power consumption. XDA pointed out that the TDP (thermal design power, maximum power consumption) of the Tensor G2 chip of the Pixel 7 Pro is about 10-12W, which means that in theory, when the phone is under maximum load, only the power consumption of the chip and display will be reduced. Can reach 18W. It remains to be seen whether this will have a significant impact on the phone's battery life, but reports indicate that the Pixel 7 Pro consumed up to 10 percent of its battery in just 15 minutes of outdoor screen brightness.
