When it comes to our smartphone displays, usually we have to settle with whatever the handset maker has decided to use, which is why sometimes displays play a big part in choosing which phone to go for and which brand or model. However sometimes handset makers do offer users the ability to customize their displays, and this is something Google is considering as well.

In a statement made to 9to5Google, the company has confirmed that they are considering adding more display color options to its Pixel 2 handsets in future software updates. According to Google, “We know that some people prefer more vivid colors, so we’ve added an option to boost colors by 10% for more saturation. We’ll continue to pay close attention to people’s responses to Pixel, and we will consider adding more display color options through software if that makes the product better.”

It should be noted that the Pixel 2 handsets will have vivid color options enabled by default, but so far it seems that it doesn’t appear to be as vibrant compared to the likes of OLED handsets from Samsung, the original Pixel, or even the LG V30. Whether or not this is something that Google will address remains to be seen, but we guess it’s good to know that they aren’t completely closed off to the idea.
