We have some bad news related to Google’s latest flagship. New reports reveal that some Pixel 8 Pro displays are having problems with mysterious bumps. Multiple reports popped up, showing the same problem.
Mysterious bumps appear on some Pixel 8 Pro displays
If you check out the images shown below, you’ll see what we mean. It actually looks like something is causing these bumps from underneath, as if something is pressing up against the display. The display itself, under the glass, is soft, so… there you go.
The glass itself, the Gorilla Glass Victus 2, is not bothered by this. It’s obviously coming from underneath. Even a teardown appears to confirm that, as the positioning of some components aligns with these bumps.
These bumps do not affect the device’s functionality
Do note that these bumps do not affect the functionality of the Pixel 8 Pro. The touchscreen still works normally, and you really have to look for these bumps in order to see them. You have to be under specific lighting and angle the phone in a specific way to see them.
At the moment, that’s not much of a problem. However, users are concerned it could become a problem down the line. They’re worried they may become worse and damage the display in the process.
At the moment, there are dozens of reports of this happening, so it’s definitely not an isolated case. Some users even contacted Google to get a replacement unit because of this.
Google did not issue a statement regarding this, or anything of the sort. Well, at least not at the time of writing this article. Let’s hope the company will react in one way or the other, as this does deserve some attention, whether it’s a real problem, or something that users shouldn’t be worried about.
