A fix for lens flare

It wasn't long after the Pixel made its way into users' hands that some of them reported some drastic lens flare creeping into their photos, and it wasn't the good kind – see our example above. Google implemented a software 'fix' in HDR+ mode, but frankly it barely helped. When you've got uncoated glass sitting far in front of your main lens, there's not much you can do in software. All rumors point to a lens that protrudes from the body above the back glass - much like most other phones. We've got our fingers crossed that this fixes the original phones' issue.
