Google: Pixel 6 Pro screen flickering will be fixed with a software update

The Google Pixel lineup of smartphones has had a history of issues, including the original Pixel, Pixel 2 XL, and last year’s Pixel 5 as well. This year, however, Google says that the flickering issue can be fixed with a software update on the Pixel 6 Pro.

Pixel 6 Pro users noticed that when the device is off, pressing the power button with even a slight pressure activates a strange flicker on the screen. Do note that this pressure is very slight and does not actually turn the phone on. Google acknowledged this issue on its support website.

In order to avoid seeing this, according to Google, do not cycle the power button. Hold the power button down long enough to turn it on. Additionally, the company notes that it’s not a hardware issue.

Google says that the issue will be fixed with the December software update for the Pixel 6 Pro. The Pixel 6 Pro comes with a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is slightly curved at the edges and blends with the aluminium rails along the sides.
