As if the notch wasn’t already controversial enough, Google Pixel 3 XL are getting what could be the more ironic bug in a long time.
A secondary notch shows up on the side of the phone, having the exact dimensions of the physical one at the top of the screen. So if you’ve purchased a Google Pixel 3 XL, there’s a good chance the phone comes with not one, but two different notches on the screen.
And while the physical one can actually be removed thanks to software tweaks offered by Google, not the same thing can be said about the second one that shows up accidentally.
The only way to make it disappear is to reboot the phone, but it’s then just a matter of time until it shows up once again. Several users on reddit confirmed this is something that’s happening on their phones as well, and for now, there doesn’t seem to be a pattern that triggers the bug.
