Some Pixel 3 XL Devices Are Growing a Second Notch

[Update: Fix coming] Hilarious Pixel 3 XL bug adds a second notch to the side of the screen

Software bug causes Pixel 3 XL to gain a second notch

The second notch bug is the latest complaint from Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL owners. The phantom notch is reportedly easy to erase - simply restart your phone and the screen should revert to normal.

This secret developer preview of an unintentional bug a new hidden capability proves that all the kerfuffle over Google allowing you to hide the notch on Pixel 3 devices was fundamentally misplaced.

IOS 12.1 brings Group FaceTime, dual-SIM: here’s the supported devices
With all hints pointing towards the imminent launch of iOS 12.1 with two major features, users can wait a bit longer to find out. Apple has not specified a release date for iOS 12.1, though beta versions have been in testing since mid-September.

As reported by Android Police, several users have noticed a bug which randomly places a side-mounted second notch on the Pixel 3 XL's display, though unlike the very prominent hardware-based cutout at the top of the handset, this one exists exclusively in the digital realm. 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. Google has said that the fix for the issue will be rolled out to the users very soon via a software update.

The same report also claims that the notch issue can be resolved by rebooting the device or tweaking the developer settings. Users recently began reporting memory-management issues and that photos taken with Google's new phones aren't saving. The smartphone retailer has tweeted an image of the sale details, which shows that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL retail sale offer will be available between November 1 and November 7.
