Oh no here comes another gate. Over the past several days people have been posting photos taken by the Google Pixel and Pixel XL which include crazy lens flare with. The lens flare looks like an obnoxious rainbow like halo. This is triggered by any light source. Point the camera at the sun get a halo. Take a picture of a candle get a halo. The halo even shows up when the light source is not even in the frame. This seemed pretty isolated at first, but Google has responded.
Google acknowledged the halo in the Pixel User Community as a legitimate problem. They said that they will be able to develop of software fix for this issue which they are working on now. They home to have the update released in the next few weeks. The Pixel camera uses software for things like HDR+ and even stabilization. Whatever is causing the lens flare will hopefully be something they can fix.
