Hilarious Pixel 3 XL bug gives you another notch to love

It wants me to think different

It wants me to think different

So, imagine the irony of bug that adds a second notch to the side of the display. The phantom notch is reportedly easy to erase - simply restart your phone and the screen should revert to normal.

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.

These were experienced by few of the favorite tech you tubers along with few other users as well. Well, what you see in the images above and below doesn't really obey that, especially that it's the Pixel 3 XL. Not to be confused with the old double dongle maneuver, this happens when a virtual side notch emerges out of nowhere to "complement" the physical screen cutout of the stock Android-powered 6.3-incher.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' wedding is going to be one helluva affair. "Here's sharing it with you..." wrote Priyanka. However, it seems that Priyanka has already taken her duties as a wife seriously, as her Instagram story suggests.

Thankfully, some Reddit users say just switching the phone between portrait and landscape modes will make the second notch disappear when the screen refreshes. Google has also stated that it is aware of the bug, and is working on a fix.

The gitch seems to be a software issue, one that has already been acknowledged by Google but the fix is yet to arrive.

Google's line of Pixel phones is known mostly for what they take away.
