Horror Bug Alert: The Pixel 3 XL Has Sprouted A Second Notch

TODO alt text Horror Bug Alert: The Pixel 3 XL Has Sprouted A Second Notch

So, imagine the irony of bug that adds a second notch to the side of the display.

The image shared by Mahesh Telecom on Twitter shows that the free Google Home mini will be available on the purchase of Pixel 3/Pixel 3 XL, if the consumer owns an older Pixel or Nexus device. 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.

Besides this, users will be able to purchase the newest Pixel series phones through No Cost EMIs, for up to 18 months, bundled with 5 per cent cashback. But the one thing nearly everyone agrees on is the notch: the ugly cutout is the phone's worst feature.

Fortunately, the issue disappears after a restart or after users mess around with developer settings. However, this is isn't a fix for the already controversial notch display.

Google's new Pixel 3 XL device comes with a notch, like numerous new phones coming out this year. Google reached out to Android Police and confirmed that they've received multiple reports of the issue and will be rolling out a fix shortly.

Google's line of Pixel phones is known mostly for what they take away. Here are the most important details that professionals need to know about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
