Some Pixel 6 users are experiencing a strange screen flickering issue

It isn't clear if the issues are widespread or affect only a small number of units.

What you need to know

  • A few Pixel 6 users are experiencing weird screen flickering issues.
  • The flickering happens when the power button is pressed while the phone is off.
  • Some owners are also complaining about a green tint on the screen.

Some customers who received their Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phones earlier this week have noticed a weird screen flicker problem on their phones.

According to complaints from owners on Reddit, the display flicker issue appears when pressing the power button while the phones are switched off. For now, It doesn't look like Google's best Android phones of 2021 exhibit the same behavior when they are turned on.

A few Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners are also reporting a green tint on the display. While the flickering issue hasn't been reported on previous Pixel phones, some Pixel 5a and Pixel 4 XL devices were also affected by the green tint issue. Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra and OnePlus 8 owners experienced similar tint issues as well. In both cases, the issues were "fixed" by the manufacturers with a software update.

Since Google began shipping the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro pre-orders just a few days back, we'll have to wait a little longer to find out if these issues are widespread. In case the issues aren't limited to just a small number of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro units, Google will likely roll out a new software update to fix them very soon.

It isn't the first time that users are reporting issues with their new Pixel phones. Last year, early Pixel 5 owners started noticing gaps between the screen and body, which Google later said was a "normal part of the design." A small number of Pixel 5 users also experienced some volume level problems and a proximity sensor flicker bug.

The Pixel 4 series, on the other hand, was affected by battery discharge and random shutdown issues. Some Pixel 3 and 3 XL units were also affected by the random shutdown problem, while some other units suffered from EDL issues.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
