Google will issue an update to fix Pixel 3 memory management issues

Nichole VegaNov 07, 2018

Based on the wording of Google's statement, it would be safe to assume that the memory management issue will be addressed in the Pixel 3's next security update in December, though it's possible it'll land later than that. The second image was taken using the Google Camera mode (with Night Sight activated) on the OnePlus 6 (the one that you can download from the provided link), and the third one was captured using the Google Pixel 3, and with a selected Night Sight option.

As for when Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL owners can expect the update to arrive on their phones, we unfortunately don't have an exact date just yet.

After all, you have to agree it's a pretty big coincidence that two of the very few 2018 flagship devices packing just 4GB RAM are exhibiting such serious memory management difficulties. Now, a developer has managed to port the Google Camera with Night Sight and HDR+ to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T as well, and the mode seems to work better than the stock camera's highlight feature Nightscape mode as well. That's where some users are at with the Pixel 3 right now.

Were you one of the lucky ones? That's all the better to capture your self-portraits - including those shots where you either want to cram in more people or show off more of the background behind you.

Another feature, Night Sight, promises to help you take better pictures when the lights are low.

You'll see the shortcut on your home screen.

The Pixel 3 is one of the first smartphones to ship with Android 9 Pie, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system.

Open Settings from the app drawer or home screen. And I look forward to evaluating the Pixel 4 family next year, which I'm sure will come with its own unique set of problems.
