You can check out the full breakdown of the response here, but in short, Google will be doing two main things – 1) Adding a new Saturated mode to make the Pixel 2/2XL screens considerably more vibrant and saturated, and 2) Dimming the navigation bar and working with developers to turn the background white in certain apps to reduce chances of burn-in.
