I noticed this issue since iOS 11.3 and I have never noticed it before.
It seems that everytime I swipe up for Face ID unlock, the screen flickers and I'm not sure if it's Hardware or Software related.
Anyone else experiencing the same?

It depends on what wallpaper you’re using. With some wallpapers you can see it clear as day. Others barely if at all.

To be honest, even if it was there I prolly wouldn't notice it anyway
I'm not scrutinizing it as I swipe, I'm just ready to open whatever app I intend to use, usually email or messages

Sure but imagine it's an hardware issue, it can indicate the screen has defects and soon will stop working or something.
