Google’s monthly security patch for its Nexus and Pixel devices have started to roll out through an OTA update. But aside from the usual bug fixes, the update includes a fix for the recent screen issues that have been plaguing the Pixel 2 display.

If you remember, Google’s Pixel 2 smartphone uses an OLED screen similar to what Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone X are using. But with Google’s intention of showcasing a ‘more natural and accurate rendition of color’, many users complained that the colors seemed washed out and dull.

Google promised that it wasn’t a hardware issue, and the November security patch now includes a way for you fix the colors on your Pixel 2 device.

When you go to Display settings on your Pixel 2 smartphone, you will find a new menu option under the Colors menu that let you choose between Boosted, Natural or Saturated.

These new options should hopefully fix the reported screen issues. But the Google Pixel 2 is proving to be a strong competitor to Apple and Samsung, thanks to glowing reviews and support by the Android user fanbase.
