Despite popular belief, the Pixel 6a’s display is capable of operating at 90Hz. The majority of you are aware that this display can only operate at 60Hz, and we assumed that this was due to hardware restrictions. Well, it seems not really.

The Pixel 6 and 6a don’t use the same display, Rahman continued, despite the similarities between the two panels. However, it appears that they use the same display controller.

But the question still stands: Why did Google restrict this screen to 60Hz when it can operate at 90Hz? We can only speculate as to the possible causes, which may be numerous.
It would resemble the Pixel 6 much more if it operated at 90Hz. It might discourage folks from purchasing the Pixel 6. On the plus side, the Pixel 6a does have a longer battery life thanks to this approach, and Google may have decided that the vast majority of Pixel 6a buyers would be satisfied with a 60Hz display. But the truth is only known by the firm.
