Android 15 could take your screen to new lows – Android Central

What do you want to know

  • Android already has an accessibility feature called “extra dim” that allows your phone’s screen to become darker than usual.
  • Now, with Android 15, Google appears to be working on an “even dimmer” option that could make it easier to use your phone at lower brightness levels than usually possible.
  • Although the “extra dim” feature must be set each time you want to use it, the new “even dim” feature may affect Android’s built-in adaptive brightness setting.

Android 15 could give you more control over your phone’s minimum brightness, as spotted by Android Authority in Android 15 Beta 1 code. A new setting is referenced in code strings called “same dimmer,” and it’s related to your phone’s brightness settings. Android already has an option called “extra dim” that must be manually enabled every time you want to use it.

Unfortunately, the best Android phones don’t give you full control over the brightness level of your smartphone. You can set preferences like adaptive brightness or adjust the actual brightness slider; However, phones are still limited to the minimum and maximum brightness settings set by the manufacturer. In many cases, these minimums do not correspond to the lowest brightness level your phone’s screen is capable of.
