The novelty of the active viewing notifications display is undoubtedly one of the most useful implementations made by the manufacturers. In this case, Google seems ready to implement it in the next pixel with a specific Ambient Display.
Being able to see immediately, perhaps with a single glance, notifications arrive on your smartphone without having to turn on is definitely a nice feature that many users can no longer do without it. No colored LED can replace a display that even if on standby still managed to light up a few pixels so as to propose time information, such as missed calls or perhaps on the various messages or various notifications. The first to do so were Nokia and Motorola which thanks to the Moto Display and functionality Glance allowed to obtain information to 360 degrees.
The so-called Ambient but always came later Active Display with LG and Samsung first after which they decided to implement it in a mode other than Motorola and Nokia. Yes, because in this case the same decided for an Ambient Display “always-on” that is always active with the information so as not having to implement with special activations via front or motion sensors. In this case, everything seems now attracting the attention of Google for its new Pixel could implement thereby allowing users to not miss any notification on your device.
The news comes directly from some users of XDA which made some applications following the Developer Preview 3 Android O are able to find some important references in their code attributable to the “always-on” function coupled in the Ambient Display. An innovation for Android not absolute but in this case it could offer users a more complete version as the one seen in the various odiernamente top of Samsung and LG range.
According to XDA developers when new functionality is hidden and not at all active in Android O but it is clear that Google could have her “closed” at least until the presentation of the new top company in Mountain range does not fully disclose this implementation View. Just about the new smartphone company information I am still not many and unclear. The Pixel second generation should have a completely borderless display, along the lines of the various Galaxy S8 and S8 + Samsung. Apart from this it is clear that they will get a hardware upgrade processors with latest generation which the Snapdragon 835 but also the addition of a rear panel is completely touch that Android O could provide original and useful features.
