The notch on the Pixel 3 XL is apparently one of the most ridiculed smartphone features in history, or, supposing by the thoughts of the community, the unfortunate thing to ever appear in the history of the universe. A strikingly weird bug encountered by a small number of users exhibits itself as a supplementary notch on the right side of the display, and it could only be funnier.
Reading previous reports takes me back to a few days ago when I first saw this on twitter I thought it’s a prank, but, Twists out that it’s a genuine bug experienced by several renowned users, including Jessie Burroughs, Kyle Gutschow, and UrAvgConsumer. No one’s sure what’s generating it, but it could be something to do with the screen rotation setting getting a bit mistaken about its orientation.
In all three of the examples we’ve observed, the users informed that the issue passed away after a restart or messing with the developer settings, so at least it’s not a recurring problem. Anyone who purchased a Pixel 3 XL plausibly decided that the notch didn’t disturb them that much, but we’re not sure how they’d feel about another one showing up unannounced
However, Google just reached out to the official source of this news and told them that not only is the company informed of this highly irregular behavior, but that a fix should be “coming soon.” If you really appreciate tripped-out Pixel 3 XL glitches, relish in this one while you can.
