Now that early reviews of the Pixel 2 XL are out, there have been some complaints of muted colors and a blue tint with the Google flagship’s display. Google has now responded to those complaints.
Google says that it “designed the Pixel display to have a more natural and accurate rendition of colors.” The company adds that it included a vivid colors setting to boost colors by 10 percent. However, it may add more color options in the future based on user feedback.
Here’s Google’s full statement to CNET:
"We designed the Pixel display to have a more natural and accurate rendition of colors this year but we know some people prefer more vivid colors so we've added an option to boost colors by 10% for a more saturated display. We're always looking at people's responses to Pixel and we will look at adding more color options through a software update if we see a lot of feedback."
Not only is the Pixel 2 XL a flagship smartphone from a major mobile company, it’s a fairly expensive device, too. That’s at least part of the reason why some people are upset about the way that the Pixel 2 XL’s screen looks. We’ll see if Google does end up releasing a software update with more color options in response to these complaints, but at least for now, it looks like the Pixel 2 XL’s screen will remain the way that it is.
