Interestingly, Google unveiled the Pixel Buds Bluetooth-enabled headphones alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL earlier this year that are created to deliver a Google Assistant experience while on the go.
Just a few days after we posted about the screen flashing when some owners unlock or lock their Pixel 2 XL, some of the device's owners are having difficulty with touch responsiveness near the edges of the screen.
For now, it appears that the unresponsive screen edges of Google Pixel 2 XL have nothing to do with hardware defects.
Google has admitted the issue exists and has said it will sort it out in a future OTA update.
Google's own Assistant-enabled headphones, the Pixel Buds, will be released and shipped soon.
Indeed this seems fishy and as the source reports it is to do with accidental touch protection logic.
Judging by the fact that an official Google Community Manager has responded to say a fix is in the works, this sounds like a genuine issue that Google is acknowledging.
Google has been battling a number of issues relating to the LG-produced OLED display used on its new Pixel 2 XL Android Oreo flagship. There were also some users who experienced possible screen burn-ins, which Google has also fixed through a recent software update.
