Google is extending the warranty period of Pixel 4 XL models after receiving countless user reports on issues related to battery drainage and other power-related problems.
The warranty extension is only applicable to users from the U.S, Singapore, Canada, Japan, and Taiwan. So far, the reported issues include not being able to turn the phone on, the phone restarts or shuts down randomly without a manual restart, problems with wireless charging, and an increasingly faster battery drain.
Google says, “other repairs are not covered by the warranty and may even supersede the extended coverage and require separate repair before any warranty-covered repairs for the listed issues can occur.”
Google sold out of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in August of 2020 before the announcement of Pixel 5 and 4a 5G. It will receive updates till October 2022. Powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage, the larger variant has a 6.3-inch screen and 3,700 mAh battery.
