Google Pixel 3 XL gets horrifying second notch thanks to weird glitch

Google Pixel 3 XL gets horrifying second notch thanks to weird glitch”

It's not yet known what triggers this behavior, but if you have a Pixel 3 XL and you see a second notch, don't worry.

The notch glitch has turned up for several users on Twitter, as well as for some users on reddit, all of whom appear to have resolved the issue with a quick reboot. Reportedly, only a few Pixel 3 XL users are facing this notch issue.

If one big notch didn't attract enough criticism towards the Pixel 3 XL then the second notch will. Not to be confused with the old double dongle maneuver, this happens when a virtual side notch emerges out of nowhere to "complement" the physical screen cutout of the stock Android-powered 6.3-incher. Android Police suspects that it may have something to do with screen rotation and the phone forgetting that the notch is not supposed to be at the top while in landscape mode, and it does seem like a possible explanation. The problem appears to be fixed with a restart or by tinkering wth the developer settings, so luckily it's nothing too serious. However, this is isn't a fix for the already controversial notch display.

Google is working on a software update for all Pixel phones after a rash of complaints about unsaved photos.

Pixel 3 XL has been in the limelight for some wrong reasons lately. Still annoying, but knowing that Google is aware, and that a fix is coming soon, is reassuring.
