Full Story

Pixel users have been reporting issues with their new handsets, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, on Reddit and the Google Support Forums. According to some users, there are strange dents and bumps appearing under the display of the devices, with one Reddit user describing them as “weird dents/bumps.” Upon close inspection, these dents appear to be visible under specific lighting conditions. One user shared, “Some look like the heads of screws from the mainboard punching through it, others like the screen itself bends alongside the (long) edge.”

Another Reddit user, marlotrot, even posted photos of the issue and uploaded a YouTube video showcasing the problem with the screen on the Pixel 8. Similarly, a Pixel 8 Pro user in Australia noted, “Affected screens appear to have bumps, ripples and lines indented into the panel behind the glass screen.” This was a cause for concern as they feared potential long-term damage and the poor quality control for their premium phone.

The issue has led to speculation, with one Reddit user theorizing that screws used inside the phones are being pushed up toward the affected displays, creating the dents and bumps. Another user, tadhglewis, claimed that Google exchanged his Pixel 8 Pro for a replacement model, but the same issue was spotted on the new unit, leading to the theory that internal components pressing against the screen could be causing the problem. If you are experiencing this issue with your Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro display, it is advised not to ignore it as it could potentially get worse over time. Users are encouraged to contact Google as the phones are still covered under warranty.
