Google has promised to roll out a fix for Battery Overcharging issue with Pixel XL. The company also confirmed that although an overcurrent draw might take place in a short period of time even when the phone is used under normal situations, there is a slim chance that the occurrence will lead to a hazardous outcome.
The battery-related issue surfaced earlier this week after one user took to Reddit to disclose the charging bug in the Pixel XL, specifically involving the USB Type-C to USB Type-C charging.
For those worrying that this may result in overheating, John McNulty, Head of Safety and Compliance Engineering for Google Consumer Hardware, said in a statement that the Pixel XL was equipped with several layers of protection to keep it safe for consumers and prevent instances of overheating.
It remains to be seen, though, when Google plans to roll out the fix, though it should not be too long before it reaches the affected devices.
