The new Google Pixel 4 is currently dealing with a couple of issues and it appears it’s not stopping anytime soon. The company already promised update for the face unlock and 90Hz refresh screen issues. Now, a German user just noticed that the display of the Pixel 4 is warmer (relative to Pixel 3). While this is not exactly an issue, it raised concerns for some users. Although there are several other settings for the display which the Pixel 3 does not have, the change does not give a significantly different colour profile for the Pixel 4. Google officially confirmed the warmer display of the Pixel 4
Hallo Denny. Wir sind gerade auf Deinen Tweet gestoßen. Ja, wir haben die Displayfarbe bei dem Google Pixel 4 weg von den kühleren, bläulichen bewegt und verliehen einen wärmeren, gelblichen Ton. Lass uns wissen, wenn Du noch Fragen hast.

The tweet reads “Is it just me or the display of GooglePixel4 is not well-calibrated, very warm?”. Google responded “Hello Denny. We just came across your tweet. Yes, we’ve moved the display color at the Google Pixel 4 away from the cooler, bluish ones, giving it a warmer, yellowish tone. Let us know if you have any questions”.
When compared with the pixel 3, it is noticeable that the displays deviate appreciably. It appears that the Pixel 4 is a bit too warm and therefore yellowish, the Pixel 3 display is much too cold and bluish at the same time. This requires quite a bit of time to settle in, even when compared to displays of devices from other manufacturers.
