Google’s Pixel 6 appears to be hit again by a bug of unknown origin. The problem this time around is with the screen, which shows curious black dots that grow alarmingly over time.

The Pixel 6 isn’t its first problem, and the list of bugs is sadly quite long. Users of the latest Google smartphone had the unfortunate surprise to discover an alarming new problem. Black pixels suddenly appear on the screen without warning and appear to grow larger over time.

Black spots that appear at night

This issue was reported on Reddit, Twitter, but also on the Google support page. A Pixel 6 Pro user complains about the issue, stating that his device hasn’t been the subject of a drop or an update. Messages in response to him were aimed at the same problem.

I got some dead pixels from the front camera. I didn’t drop the phone or damage the screen so I have no idea how this happened.

Repair was free under warranty, it took forever lol. In the meantime I have been using my working Pixel 6 with my TMobile sim. pic.twitter.com/lQMGM61pS3

This black dot seems to appear for some in the upper right corner of the smartphone while for others it occurs in the front camera of the device or in other places. According to some users, they may be dead pixels and therefore simply off.

Too many bugs for the Pixel 6?

At this time, it is impossible to know the nature of the problem, be it hardware or software. A hardware problem could force Google to recall some smartphones to swap them for non-defective models.

If it turns out that this complication comes from software, the company may first fix it via an update as in the case of a user who saw his black spot disappear after installing the March security update on his phone.

Several bugs have already degraded the Pixel 6 experience in the past, and Google doesn’t seem to have found real solutions to prevent its cascading anomalies. This could be one of the most serious problems on the phone so far, and some users may consider looking elsewhere unless the Pixel 7 does much better this fall.
