    Hi there!
    Recently I've been noticed that there's a flashing square will appear on the right side of the touchbar.
    But once I moved the mouse or touch the touchbar, keyboard, the square will gone and everything back to normal.
    It doesn't affect the function of the touchbar, but it just annoying.
    I know there's someone with similar issue, but no fix so far.
    Personally I don't think it's a hardware issue.
    Please help or share your opinion.

    P.S. sorry for my amateur english ;)



    Sorry for the late update, for anyone concern.
    It turned out sadly confirmed as a hardware issue and it need to be sent back for repair service
    I wait like 4 weekdays for the parts and another 2 days for the repairing process.
    - Repaired Parts: Top Case (w/ keyboard and TouchBar layout), Battery pack
    - Charge: (within warranty) Free of Charge
    - Result: PROBLEM SOLVED

    Device info.
    Macbook pro 15' 2018 i7 processer, 256GB
    bought it back in Sep. 17th

    Go to an apple store and ask them to fix it. This should not happen on such an expensive machine.
