Last month, Google announced the Pixel 6 series, which began delivering on October 28. Unlike earlier Pixel launches, which had strange hardware difficulties, the Pixel 6 lineup appears to be free of such concerns. However, certain Pixel 6 Pro customers have noticed a screen flickering issue that only occurs in certain circumstances, and Google has promised to provide a bugfix update next month.
Fix for Pixel 6 Pro Screen Flickering Issue
According to 9to5Google, some Pixel 6 Pro users have found that if they partially hold down the power button while the device is switched off, the screen begins to flicker. It does not appear when you press and hold the power button to turn on the device, and it does not last while the device is turned on.
The Pixel 6 Pro’s display residual light issue has been acknowledged by Google, who has promised to solve it in the December software update. Furthermore, the manufacturer has stated that the screen flickering issue is not a hardware problem. “To avoid seeing this, when the power is off, do not cycle the power button. When you want to use the phone, hold the power button down long enough to turn it on,” wrote the company’s representative.
While the screen flickering fault is unlikely to bother you due to its restricted scope, there are a few drawbacks with the 6 Pro that you should be aware of before purchasing the device. A slow fingerprint scanner, variable auto-brightness response, hitches in performance and photo processing rates, and average battery life are all known Pixel 6 Pro concerns.
