Google Pixel 7 / Pro does not support 32-bit apps

Google officially announced the Pixel 7 series a few days ago. The Google Pixel 7 series seems to be the first Android smartphone that only supports 64-bit applications. According to tech enthusiasts, @MishaalRahman, the Google Pixel 7 series does only support running 64-bit applications. This means that those 32-bit applications that have not been updated will not work.  An error message appears when trying to install a 32-bit-only Android app on the Pixel 7.

@MishaalRahman also points out that while Android 13 on Pixel 7 phones don’t allow 32-bit apps to run, internally, the OS is still using some 32-bit libraries. This implies that Google is intentionally preventing 32-bit apps from running. Most users will not be aware of this, because most applications already support 64-bit. Since August 2019, all applications on the Google Play Store must have 64-bit support. Last year, it stopped offering 32-bit applications without any 64-bit support.

Google Pixel 7 Pro display is more power hungry

There are 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. 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. XDA reports that the phone’s display would consume a lot of power when used at higher brightness.

Google Pixel 7 Pro consumes about 3.5-4W at 600nits 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. This is a lot more than the screen power consumption of the Pixel 6 Pro. The Pixel 6 Pro 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. The Galaxy S22 Plus screen consumes just 2W at 600 nits and 4W at 1,000 nits.
