AutoHz lets you control app refresh rate on Oneplus 8 Series



AutoHz lets you control app refresh rate on Oneplus 8 Series

AutoHz lets you control app refresh rate on Oneplus 8 Series.

OnePlus offers a 120Hz high refresh rate display and also allows the same to be set at maximum QHD+ resolution. However, the maximum 120Hz setting is not set across all the apps uniformly.

XDA Recognized Developer arter97‘s has developed an app AutoHz which lets you set refresh rates for every app on your phone.

In OnePlus stock settings, the device run at a constant 60Hz refresh rate, and 90Hz/120Hz acts as an auto option which switches the refresh rate back to 60Hz in certain conditions.One can enable the 90Hz/120Hz through the ADB command but that would increase the power consumption on your device.

AutoHz app provides a 90Hz refresh rate on the OnePlus 8 and a 120Hz refresh rate on the OnePlus 8 Pro. The app lets you control how and when your OnePlus device switches to 60Hz or 90/120Hz. The app is specifically made for OnePlus devices with high-refresh-rate displays and runs on Oxygen OS.

AutoHz is a paid application and also requires a one-time setup with ADB. There is a list of installed apps and a toggle beside each app. The 60Hz,90Hz, and 120Hz settings set the display refresh rate within that app and the Auto setting keeps the system’s default behavior for that particular app.

There is no 90Hz midway setting for Oneplus 8 Pro, you can either choose 60Hz or 120Hz.AutoHz app is available on the Google play store.AutoHz only works on OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T, 7T Pro, 8, and 8 Pro running OxygenOS.

Leaked Google Pixel 8a Box Suggests Smaller Form and Fast 27W Charging



Google Pixel 8a

Google’s Pixel 8 lineup, i.e. Google Pixel 8 and Google Pixel 8 Pro, was launched in October 2023. But if we talk about the Google Pixel 8a, then it is expected to be launched in May this year. As we know, the Google Pixel 7a was launched in May last year.

Recently, the box for the Google Pixel 8a has leaked. The recent leak includes the retail box of the new Pixel 8a. On the box, we have an Obsidian Black color variant. The Google Pixel 8a will come in 3 colors, i.e. Obsidian Black, Porcelain, and Bay.

If we see the second picture, then it’s visible that this time as well, we have to buy the charger separately (it isn’t included in the box). Also, the new Google Pixel 8a will support 27W charging, which can be a good upgrade from 18W. But still, it won’t compete with 65W, 80W, 100W, and 150W fast charging phones. The phone is expected to come in two storage variants i.e. 8GB RAM /128GB ROM and 8GB RAM/256GB ROM.

The Google Pixel 8a with model number G6GPR, comes with a dual-back camera setup like the Google Pixel 7a and a little underclocked Tensor G3 chipset. Pixel 8a will also be a mid-range phone and is expected to cost $500 (Rs. 42,999) in India like Google Pixel 7a or $50 more i.e. $550 (Rs. 45716.91).

This mid-range smartphone has been at the center of numerous stories and rumors, drawing significant public interest. Previously, “Pacman” was rumored to be the codename for the Phone (2a).

The Phone (2a) is anticipated to feature a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 CPU and a 6.7-inch 1084 x 2412 pixels 120Hz AMOLED display. Camera-wise, it’s equipped with a 50 MP + 50 MP dual-back camera setup, complemented by a 32 MP selfie camera. A robust 4920 mAh battery powers the device. It’s expected to come in two RAM/storage configurations: 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB. Color options are likely to be classic – White and Black.

As for the launch, it’s expected next month, with rumors pointing to February 27, 2024, as a potential date. The Phone (2a) is expected to be priced around $400, €400, or Rs 30,000, making it an attractive option in the mid-range market.
