Google Rolls Out Pixel 2 XL Screen Fixes, KRACK Patch

From PC Mag: Google is rolling out some of the fixes it promised late last month following widespread reports detailing screen burn-in on the Pixel 2 XL. To "extend the life of the OLED display," the navigation bar buttons at the bottom of the Pixel screen will now fade out after a short period of inactivity, Google wrote.

Google is also reducing the maximum brightness of the Pixel 2 XL. This will "significantly" reduce load on the screen "with an almost undetectable change in the observed brightness," Google Engineering Vice President Seang Chau in a blog post last month.

Google said these changes "have been carefully designed so as not to detract from the user experience."

"Since all OLED displays experience some degree of decay over time, we'll continue to make enhancements which maximize the life of your Pixel screen," Google wrote.

The update also includes a new Saturated color mode for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, a fix for "the faint clicking noise heard in some Pixel 2s," and a number of other bug fixes and security updates, Google said.
