It's not unusual to see one or two software bugs on a newly released smartphone, but it looks like some Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL units are infected with a particularly nasty camera-related problem. Many early adopters have reported a bug that occasionally prevents photos from saving after capture in the camera app.

The technical details behind the problem are not quite clear, but looking at discussions on Reddit appears older Pixel phones, and even Nexus devices, have had similar issues in the past.

The good news is that Google is now reacting and addressing the issue. A spokesperson talked to Android Police and provided the following statement:

"We will be rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to address the rare case of a photo not properly saving."

The company has also confirmed that the bug will not only be fixed on the latest Pixel 3 devices but also on older Google Pixel 1 and 2 generation phones that are affected.

Even if it only happens rarely, a lost photo in an important moment is every photographer's nightmare. So it's good to see Google's is taking steps to fix the issue across all affected models.
