1. Start downloading an OTA system update. (I'm on Flame Aurora channel, using a normal nightly system update on that channel.)

2. Open an app that supports landscape mode (like Browser), and hold the phone in landscape mode.

3. When your update finishes downloading, hit the button to accept the update & reboot.

ACTUAL RESULTS: The "System Update" splash screen is really oddly displayed.
 - The text "System Update" is towards the lower-left of the screen.
 - The image is partially pushed off the bottom of the screen.

See upcoming photo for an example.

I'm hitting this on the Flame 2.1 "Aurora" channel. (Noticed it a week or so ago, & just tried & reproduced it again, installing the latest update.)

(mhenretty, maybe you could take a look, or know who the right person to take a look would be?)

Let's see how bad it looks in the photo and decide whether or not to block.

(Yes, that's a screen crack; that part is not the fault of this bug. :))
I believe we need visual specs for the landscape mode.

Bad UX bug but not blocking because too late in the game, user impact is minimal and user that buys the phone doesn't see it every day.
Lets fix on master and uplift if its a low risk patch.

This belongs to Jenny. This is a standard component so i don’t think it’d be visual design but Jenny, please re-assign if so.

This is definitely something we want to fix, but I think maybe this is more of a visual problem?
Hi Eric, is this covered by you ;)?

Hi Jenny, thanks for flagging me on this.  The contents should be veritcally centered on the screen the way they are in portrait :). Thanks!

just wanted to add that this should be part of the building blocks.  Does this happen for all confirm screens?  If so, the building blocks may need to be fixed to correct this issue.
