I have updated my poco x3 nfc to 12.0.8.0 a couple of weeks ago and since 2 days, my phone goes nuts everyone once in while. all the sudden apps begin to open up randomly, so fast that the screen flickers. it seems like some one is touching the screen at 100 miles per hour. some setting gets changed and apps get messed up with different configurations. all happens fast and randomly. it has happened 3 times already and i had to restart the phone to get it in functioning mode again. just now my phone experienced ghost touch but in a very slow and mild way. i could not use my gesture controls correctly and when i would type , 2 letters would type in at the same time or a wrong letter all together. this has been happening for 3 days in a row now. I have restarted the phone, scanned for viruses, cleared the chache and optimized the phone.
please explain this phenomenon and how i can correct it?
thanks in advance

Got the new EU android 11 update and hoped the issue would be resolved. It was not, so now I'm looking into warranty to see if they'll do something with the screen...
