Rebooting the phone or performing a factory reset seems to solve the problem for some folks, while others say their cameras are still borked.

Part of the reason the Pixel 3 and 3 XL cameras are so good is down to the clever software algorithms Google has used to smartly enhance snaps and provide modes such as portrait and night sight. There's no official acknowledgement from Google so far when Business Insider reached out for comment.

Rozetked, a Russian tech blog, has leaked the complete design of the Pixel 3 Lite.

Google's Pixel 3 has a major new bug that's stopping people from being able to use its camera. Then, when they return to the main camera app on the Pixel 3, the camera app shows a blank screen, or a notification pops up within the app saying the camera has experiences a "fatal error". Some are also reporting receiving a "can't connect to camera" message when trying to launch a third-party camera app. Likely to debut as Google Pixel 3 Lite, the smartphone has appeared in some hands-on images revealing its key features and specifications. Stay tuned with PhoneRadar for more updates. As 9to5Google reports, Google is working to rectify this by saving the Call Screen transcripts. Have you run into this issue at all, or know someone who has?

The incredible Pixel 2 deals come as Google has just released a new update for the hardware.

Along with Android Pie, Google also introduced Digital Wellbeing which is aimed at making users aware of their usage habits. Currently, it is only available for the Pixel 3, and the transcripts disappear as soon as the call ends.
