Pixel 2xl screen flash

Just got a new pixel 2xl and from the start the screen will flash once really bright when I unlocked my phone. The phone has all the updates and it will do it about 80% of the time

This is a rare bug. Contact Google tech support. There is no work around for this at the moment.

Disabling the Always-On Display should generally work around this bug:

Settings > Display > Ambient display > Always on.

Ambient Display option is no longer correcting the issue apparently.

Oh that sucks. It seems like this was fixed with the June update - but that "fix" introduced another problem. With the recurrence of the flashing after the July patch I assume that the "fix" was reverted to avoid the new problem. 

In any case, I've seen a lot of reports that this is actually and truly fixed on Android P which should arrive in the next month or two.
