Is there a fix for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Screen Flickering and Green Tint Problems?

Although Google has recently released both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro models after waiting for a while, it seems that even this year’s flagship Pixel devices aren’t free from hardware or software-specific issues out of the box. It’s needless to say that the previous generation of Pixel models has some faults and the so-called legacy still continues. Now, affected users are wondering Is there a fix for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Screen Flickering & Green Tint Problems?

There are plenty of reports that surfaced in online forums within a couple of days after some early birds got the new Pixel 6 series. According to the reports, both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices are getting affected by the dual punch-hole issue, green tint issue, and unusual flickering issue in most cases. It’s quite unexpected from such a reputed smartphone brand and such a popular Pixel lineup that has been in the industry for years.

Now, if you’re one of the affected Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro owners then you might be asking whether there is a workaround available or not. Well, it’s quite unfortunate that as of now there are no possible solutions available that can eventually fix these issues temporarily or even permanently. Mostly the screen flickering issue and green tinting issue on the Pixel 6 series are appearing out of nowhere.

It’s also worth mentioning that the screen flickering issue is quite unexpected because whenever users are trying to press the Power button on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro multiple times or even if the handset is fully turned off. This is a weird issue and Google should take it seriously by providing a hotfix as early as possible. Whereas a few users have reported that it also happens while their device is turned on after pressing the Power button.

In respect of this issue, some users do believe that the screen flickering may be happening due to the static charge that’s appearing while pressing the Power button. But there is no 100% confirmation on it and there is no valid solution surfaced yet online to fix Pixel 6 Screen Flickering.

It’s also necessary to highlight that both the newly launched flagship Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro models do come with Google’s in-house Tensor chipset for better performance, power efficiency, and improved privacy than ever. Now, talking about the green tint on the Pixel 6 series is one of the common issues among Pixel device users because it was also there on Pixel 3, Pixel 4, and even Pixel 5 generations.

Whereas another user has been recently tweeted that the Pixel 6 Pro of that user is showing a double punch-hole camera design on the display which is again weird as well as frustrating. Even after pulling down the notification panel or locking/unlocking the screen doesn’t get rid of the more than one punch-hole camera design. It’s considered to be either a software bug or a hardware fault (display issue) as a first impression.

However, the affected users did also mention that it’s not a kind of display-related issue most probably because playing with it doesn’t bleed or warp the punch-hole twice. So, it remains the same, and even debugs drawing over the double hole-punch design didn’t come in handy. Whereas some other users are saying that it could be a dead pixel issue on the display and should be replaced asap from the authorized Google Store.

Although both the Pixel 6 lineup models are good enough in terms of hardware specifications and software stability apart from performance, it’s quite out of luck that some users are facing such trouble. It’s also more disturbing for Google because it’s not confirmed officially whether these issues are happening due to a buggy software version or there may be some issues with the hardware in the first batch of production most probably.

Well, you may have to wait for a while until a fix for the Pixel 6/6 Pro Screen Flickering issue landed officially and at least until Google acknowledges it. Meanwhile, there is nothing you can do from your side except for waiting. We’ll keep updating this article whenever there is a new report or info available regarding these problems with the Google Pixel 6 series. Till then stay tuned for more info.

That’s it, guys. We assume this guide was helpful to you. For further queries, you can comment below.


  1. Ok so my Pixel 6 Pro just flickering but has nothing to do with the power button. My problem happened 1st whenever I hit the auto rotate button. Now it flickers in normal view top and bottom of screen.

  2. This phone cost to much money to be having these issues without a solution very disappointed in pixel!!!

  3. It’s getting too hot, I had initially thought it to be a security measure from the Play Store due to me using AC Market & Dlandroid (Cracked/hacked/modded versions of existing apps…free) or a virus, then it started doing it even after reset, but the mods and overall processing power that was needed, was affecting the battery and causing it to mess the screen up, I finally got things under control again and even though the green tinting is gone so far it did leave it ominous orange/red tint to my screen. Better start pocketing phones to replace your current one because it’s only a matter of time once you get it unless you have it repaired.

  4. I don’t know how bad yours is but my favorite part was staring at my phone trying to figure out why it’s getting so hot and then all of a sudden a strobe light goes off in my eyes… And it was progressively harder to power off, to the point that I had to turn my head away and press power+ vol down good luck.

  5. My screen goes a tint of green when first turned on or touching the screen,or when the phone goes into lock screen.
    Is it correct Google say there is no fix it also eats through battery life.
    Is there no fix other than not buying another Google phone its only a year old.

  6. My phone went to a green tint, so i turned off the night light.
    Now the whole screen flickers, ive tried a system reset but get the flickering
