Pixel 3 XL owners who don't like the notch have the option to hide it if they don't like it. It has nothing to do with the main notch on the top that houses the cameras.

It's theorized that the issue is related to a feature that allows the Pixel 3 XL's notch to be hidden by placing black bars alongside the cutout-these "second notches" are appearing at the side of the phone because of the glitch. But the one thing nearly everyone agrees on is the notch: the ugly cutout is the phone's worst feature.

Though the phantom notch has so far only reared its ugly head in a few isolated instances, users have already taken to social media to post pictures of their bugged-out phone displays, including Kyle Gutschow (whose picture can be seen above) and UrAvgConsumer (seen below). Some users claim that when simply rotating the phone between portrait and landscape modes, which forces a screen refresh, the additional notch will disappear, while others claim that a full reboot is needed to make it go away. Google has acknowledged the issue and is now working on a fix.

Android Police reports that Google has told the company it's aware of the problem and that a fix is coming soon. 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.
