MADRID, March 27
Google is working on an update to the automatic brightness feature in Android to adjust the initial brightness that it will display in a dark environment before turning itself off and thus avoiding the user’s glare.
Brightness is a broad function in Android that controls the brightness of the screen according to the illumination of the environment in which the smartphone is used. In this way, the screen increases brightness in bright environments and decreases it in dark environments.
However, this automatic function varies the intensity of the brightness once on the screen. That is, the mobile rotates at the same brightness level that it had before the last time the LED was rotated. This causes the user to get stuck sometimes, for example, at night.
Now Google intends to introduce an update that controls the level of initial brightness that the “smartphone” will show each time the LED is turned on and, subsequently, to better adjust the brightness of the ambient lighting. This method is intended to protect the user’s vision by avoiding glare when the device is turned on in dark environments.
This analyst Mishaal Rahman by a . it has been shown Twitter postwhere he notes some features that appear with the development of the new version of Android – this time Android 13 QPR2-, including determining the brightness of the initial screen.
“Use brightness sensors to determine the initial brightness of the screen”
Test: Use the device in a bright room, take the screen away, go to a dark room, take the screen in, make sure that the screen is not too bright. https://t.co/r59GQDBWbM
