A week ago, a light darkened bar appeared at the bottom left of the screen. In the beginning it was only visible on white backgrounds. It is gradually getting worse. The black bar is now visible on any color that isn't dark. (AKA the entire internet)
It's also flickering to a more or lesser degree most of the time.
Has anyone encountered this before?

- Intel© Core™ i7-7600U CPU @ 2.80GHz × 2

I have exactly the same problem, which appeared yesterday. Here is my post: https://goo.gl/HVHyyk
I contacted a Lenovo support agent, and they asked me to return the computer for repair. So I will send it to Lenovo.

Q: Did they tell you anything more? Like a hint as to what they expect the problem to be?
A: No, they didn't explain anything. After I told them the problem, they asked me to return it. As for repairing the computer in Europe, I recommend you consult a Lenovo support agent at https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/PDChat
Q: I'm curious if this happened randomly, or soonish after upgrading your BIOS?
A: I guess this problem is irrelevant to the BIOS, because I didn't upgrade my BIOS before the grey bar appeared.

Update: Due to no parts for the OLED display, Lenovo case manager offers a non-OLED X1 Yoga 3rd Gen with the similar specs. I accept the offer.

Did they offer the HDR WQHD version? I am having the same issue tonight with my X1 Yoga 2nd gen. I topped out the spec when I purchased and I did fall in love with the OLED over the past year....until now!!!
Worst thing is that mine is out of warranty for 2 months.. Just contacted the support and see what they will do with this. Glad to hear that I am not alone with this issue.

definitely can't recommend lenovo to others anymore...urghhh. my old thinkpad have lasted for more than 12 years. This one...not even 2 years..
