Software bug causes Pixel 3 XL to gain a second notch

Software bug causes Pixel 3 XL to gain a second notch

Even the Google Pixel 3 XL opted for a "notch" display design, but it appears to be causing some issues. Some Pixel 3 XL users have reported that a second notch has appeared on the side edge of their displays, as can be seen in the photo above. Clicking on the option will bring a black bar on top of the screen in place of the notch.

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. At the same time, it might not be a bad idea to think how two or three notches would look on the Pixel 4. Reportedly, the screen rotation feature is getting mixed up with the phone's orientation and this is what is bringing the extra notch of the side of the phone.

The same users have further stated that the notch disappeared after restarting the device or tweaking few of the developer settings.

We might also see what's become of Apple's AirPower charging pad, and possibly a change or two for other accessories. Rumors are circulating that a new , more expensive version might be on the way, specifically for professional users.

Apart from the camera, one of the best things about the Pixel 3 XL is the notch that equips the dual selfie camera, earpiece and the sensor. Google has acknowledged the issue and is now working on a fix.

We've reached out to Google for comment, but the company has already provided a statement to Android Police, confirming the bug is known and will be addressed in a future software update.
