The new Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphone launched recently and now some owners of the new handsets are reporting issues with the device.
Some owners of the new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have reported that their device has been randonly shutting down, a number of owners of the device have mentioned this on Reddit.
I had 3 shutdowns yesterday, including over night, causing me to miss my wake alarm. And another shutdown tonight. Today I used my phone in “Safe Mode” to eliminate any chance of a third party app causing it. Unfortunately it did, so unless its an issue in the OS, it’s hardware related.
These shutdowns appear to be random and happened when the device is not being used, owners of the handset have reported that their screen wont turn on when it occurs. The only way to get the device to come back on is with a hard reset.
It is not clear as yet how widespread the issue is, if you have had this issue on your Google Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL, leave a comment below and let us know. As yet there is no official word from Google on when this issue will be resolved.
