Some of Google’s Pixel 3 smartphones are suffering from an overheating problem while charging, according to various reports. The users of Pixel 3 have taken to Reddit, Twitter, and Google product forums to highlight the issue being faced in both Pixel devices — Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Generally, the smartphones get hot while heating but these Pixel devices are getting so hot that the software turns the device off. The users of the phones have reported that this issue is also being observed in wireless charging.
Some of the users claimed on Reddit that the device heats up even more when some sort of action is performed while charging such as playing games, streaming video, etc. Some of the screenshots of the device are shared on various platforms which show the overheating message — “phone is getting warm.” If the device continues to heat up, the Pixel 3 automatically shuts down the phone to avoid damage.
Google has not yet responded to this issue but we are expecting that the company will release its statement soon as some of the users have gone to the extent of applying for a replacement device.
Google launched its flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices last month. Pixel 3 sports a 5.5-inch full-HD+ flexible OLED display while Pixel 3 XL carries a 6.4-inch full-HD+ flexible OLED display. Both devices have a 18:9 aspect ratio. These smartphones are powered by the Qualcomm’s latest offering Snapdragon 845 SoC which is based on 10nm manufacturing technology and are assisted by Adreno 630 GPU, 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM with the option of two onboard storages — 64 GB and 128 GB.
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature a 12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera sensor with f/1.8 aperture, 1.4-micron pixel size, and 76-degree field-of-view. The front carries a dual camera setup with two 8-megapixel sensors. Both smartphones are fuelled by a 3,430-mAh battery with support for the same 18W fast charging technology.
