Update 1 (November 1, 2023)

04:35 pm (IST): Fortunately, this issue has already been resolved by the Google support team.

Original story follows:

Ever since Google launched Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, users have come up with various kinds of issues with these smartphones.

And while we were hoping that these issues would eventually get fixed with the Android 13 release, that hasn’t been the case so far.

Pixel 6 owners are still reporting several issues with the handsets and you can check them out in our dedicated bugs and issues tracker.


Pixel 6 & 6 Pro incorrect status bar height relative to camera cutout

With that said, some Pixel 6 and 6 Pro users are now complaining about a visual glitch where the status bar height is incorrect and does not match the camera cutout.

Users say that the level of the status bar has moved up relative to the cutout for the camera. You’ll easily be able to check this visual glitch from the images attached below.

Device – Pixel 6 Pro. As for me it started from March 05 update, and it still here on TP1A.221005.002. On older February build it was good and symmetrical. Also I seen that same bug on youtuber’s unboxing of Pixel 7 Pro. (Source)

After the update from 21.03 on pixel devices of the 6th and 7th generation, the level of the statusbar has moved up relative to the cutout for the camera. This greatly spoils the perception of the system, especially for people with perfectionism.
Please fix this. In the attached files, I attached a photo BEFORE the update and AFTER the update. As well as the difference where two screenshots layered on top of each other. (Source)

According to those affected, this issue started after March 2022 update and is still present on the Pixel 6 devices. And it seems that it’s only affecting Pixel 6 and 6 Pro models as we haven’t seen any reports from Pixel 6a owners.

And while the issue has been there since March, it’s only now Google seems to have picked it up for investigation. However, there’s still no ETA for the fix.

Regrettably, we haven’t come across any workaround that might help you resolve this glitch. So, you’ll have to wait until devs come up with a definite fix.

That said, we will keep track of the latest development regarding this bug and keep you informed by updating this story.
