Major glitch in Pixel 3 XL is causing a second notch to appear
One of the major design flaws on the Pixel 3 XL was its massive notch accompanied by thick bezels on the bottom of the display.

Well, a new Glitch on the Pixel 3 XL is enabling the second notch on the right side of the display.
Second Notch On Pixel 3 XL Screen
Many Pixel 3 XL users are reporting the existence of a second notch on the right side of the smartphone’s display. The dimensions of the second notch resemble the notch on top of Google Pixel 3 XL. Google announced that it will soon release a fix to the above-mentioned glitch. Initially, the option to disable and add more notches on the Pixel 3 XL was hidden in the developer’s option.
Surprisingly, the second notch on the Pixel 3 XL is not a permanent issue. This second notch can be eliminated either by restarting the smartphone or tweaking the developer options on the smartphone.
