Google has released Android 7.1.2 for the Pixel and Nexus smartphones, and with it comes a fix for the pink streaking issue affecting some Pixel cameras. Owners affected by the issue report a pink banding and vertical lines that appear on photos taken using the Pixel's camera app. Google had encouraged affected handset owners to factory reset their phone as a temporary solution for the problem, and now it has released a permanent fix with the latest version of Android.
