Google’s response to the new Pixel 6 Pro display flickering problem; promises to release a new patch

Google has announced the new Pixel 6 series, and it has caught everyone’s attention. Everyone felt like Google has put a decent effort into making the new pixel devices, as there is an upgrade to the camera hardware and has all the key specifications that a flagship smartphone has in 2021.

The Google Pixel 6 series comprises the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The Pro variant features a large curved display with 120Hz refresh rate, an additional telephoto camera unit, and a few upgrades compared to the base variant (Pixel 6).

Talking about the new Pixel 6 Pro, it is arguably one of the best flagship devices you could lay your hands on as the device is very promising with an excellent user and hands-on experience. In addition, the Pixel 6 Pro has impressed many prominent smartphone reviewers and was given excellent reviews and ratings.

As the saying goes, no device is made perfect, and few issues of Google Pixel 6 Pro have surfaced online, with the Flickering Display issue being the most significant issue out of all.

Talking about the issue, few users have complained that the ghostly flickering problem occurs only when the device is tried to turn off, and after pressing the power button, the screen flickers. With the time being, several users have experienced the same flickering issue on their Pixel 6 Pro and have reported it to Google.

In response to these reports, Google has responded stating that “Pixel 6 Pro users may notice slight, transient display artifacts when the device is turned off, and when they press on the power button with a slight pressure but not enough [pressure] to turn it on.”

In addition, Google has suggested the Pixel 6 Pro users press the Power button hard enough so that the display turns on and also warned the users to avoid cycling the power button.

Google has added that the flickering display issue is just a bug and doesn’t affect the device’s performance in any way. The company has also promised that the bug fix will be provided with the upcoming December software update,

A minor group of Pixel 6 Pro users have complained about the Green tint issue, which will also be resolved with the next patch, as it is a simple display calibration issue. To summarise the problem, these display issues are quite common and can be fixed with software updates.

To support the above statement, here is a situation where the prominent flagship devices of Oneplus and Samsung featuring high-quality curved AMOLED panels have displayed the same issues, and many users have complained about it. Both the companies have fixed the display issues with the software updates.

As the Google Pixel 6 Series have succeeded and has great demand in the market, it would be better if Google tried to stop making such minor mistakes and keep competing with flagships from other manufacturers.
