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

Adjust Comment Print

The Pixel 3 has one of the worst notches, and making matters even worse for some Pixel 3 XL users is a weird bug that's reportedly putting even more notches on their displays.

With the Google Pixel 3 on-sale in Australia on Thursday and a growing list of issues (all pretty much fixable with software), a Maintenance Release can't come soon enough. Unusual. A Twitter user named UrAvgConsumer was among the first ones to report about this notch problem. Reportedly, only a few Pixel 3 XL users are facing this notch issue. Well, what you see in the images above and below doesn't really obey that, especially that it's the Pixel 3 XL. Turns out that it's a real-life bug experienced by several users, including Jessie Burroughs, Kyle Gutschow, and UrAvgConsumer.

In developer mode, users can also add notches to the right-hand top of the screen and the bottom of the screen.

Thankfully, Google is aware of the problem, telling Android Police that a fix for the ghastly glitch is "coming soon". The problem appears to be fixed with a restart or by tinkering wth the developer settings, so luckily it's nothing too serious.

At the beginning of August, Google outlined some guidelines mostly concerning notches. We expect Google to fix both the camera app and the notch issue in the same update shortly.
