Google Finally Fixes a Major Pixel 3 Problem

Google has announced a new software update for its Google Pixel 3 smartphones, the update is created to fix the RAM issues that users have had with the handset.

Besides patching the security issues, the update addresses a number of performance issues on the Pixel 3 and other smartphones. The update should be available on your Pixel today.

Google is moving forward with the eSIM technology that it embedded into the Pixel 2 (XL) and Pixel 3 (XL). eSIM is arguably a convenient solution for consumers “fumbling around to try to place [a nanoSIM] into a small slot”. It's hoped that these "certain circumstances" include the scenario of running a music app in the background while the camera is launched. The update should reach all Pixel users over the coming days. If you've been frustrated with your Pixel up to this point, you should have an easier time with the phone once the update is applied.

Pixel 3 owners who have picked up a Pixel Stand accessory for their Google Home will be happy to hear Google has "improved notification visibility" while your phone is docked to the Stand (though it's unclear by the post as to what exactly those improvements are). The Google Pixel 3 XL price in India starts at Rs. 83,000 for the 64GB variant and up to Rs. 92,000 for the 128GB model.

However, Google also releases the OTA and factory images for all its updates, and the December update is now live for those who prefer to flash OS updates to their devices manually.
