Google says fix is coming for slow to wake Pixel 2 XL and offers a workaround
You might remember than exactly a week ago, several Google Pixel 2 XL owners complained that after installing the June OTA Android security update, their devices would take two to three seconds longer to wake. At the time, a Google employee on the company's Issue Tracker started sniffing around, which was a hopeful sign for those with sleepy Pixel 2 XL units.

Sure enough, this morning Google posted a statement on a Reddit page that focuses on the aftermath of the June update on the Pixel 2 XL. It says that Google is aware of the issue and has already "identified a fix" that it will be disseminating over "the coming weeks." Until that fix is pushed out, Google suggests that Pixel 2 XL owners set the Ambient Display to "always on," which should hold off users for now.

The June Android security update was pushed out on June 4th. In addition to the latest security patch, the update including some functional updates that improved a number of issues such as Bluetooth LE performance, antenna switching in areas with weak coverage, Wi-Fi connectivity with certain Wi-Fi access points, and the consistency of the phone's Always-On display, and proximity sensor.
