A bizarre bug exists on some Google Pixel 3 XL devices. The recently released Google smartphone series, which has a notch on the top, start to display another fake notch on the part of the screen. It is sometimes shown on the right, sometimes on the left, for no apparent reason. Google is now working on a patch to fix this weird Google Pixel 3 XL glitch.
Users who experienced this troubling bug explain on different forums that a restart of the Google Pixel 3 XL device is sufficient to remove the fake notch and thus restore the handset to its normal condition. But this glitch may reoccur over time, requiring a new restart of the device.
It’s evident to everyone that the second notch is a software problem, but that’s not good news for those who can not use their Pixel 3 gadgets in optimal conditions. The unpleasant situation has created a significant buzz on social networks, over the last few days, and is hard to appreciate when it will be fixed by an update from Google, even though, fortunately, the company is aware of this and knows where the problem comes from.
Google will soon launch a patch to fix the fake notch glitch affecting Google Pixel 3 XL devices
The giant Internet company informed the renowned Android Police news portal that a patch would soon be available, but it did not give a specific date when the fix would be available. However, Google would most likely release the patch in just a few days when the Android security update for November will become available for download.
Google always takes the opportunity of launching security updates to fix some bugs here and there for various devices.
As a reminder, both Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL are already available across the United States but will become available in other countries on November 2nd, 2018.
