Here Is Google's Solution To Hide The Pixel 3 XL’s Ugly Notch


Google recently launched the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices with nice specs and features that put the two device up against other flagship devices in the market.


The Pixel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch (18:9) 2160x1080 AMOLED, 443 PPI display while the Pixel 3 XL comes with a 6.3-inch (18.5:9) 2960x1440 AMOLED, 523 PPI display.

The difference between the two Pixel devices is the screen size, battery size, and the notch. Yes the notch. The notch has always been one thing that most Android users hate. However, it seems Google has come up with a solution to hide the notch from the Pixel 3 XL device for those who hate that crazy notch.
According to Twitter handle Made By Google, the Alphabet company has come up with a solution that hides the notch from the Google Pixel device. Well, the notch doesn't go away entirely, but instead, the status bar is blacked out entirely so as to make the notch less visible...giving it a bezel look.

Could this method of  hiding the notch be the solution or even making the situation worse?

Well, for now the feature isn't available for users to try it out as it is still in developer-option mode. However, we will keep watch and see what the outcome will be when its finally released for users.

  1. Why not black out the background around the status icon, but leave the status icon up by the notch so at least the screen up around the notch is NOT entirely wasted. The fact that you're buying a larger screen but then simulate a back bezel with a setting seems to be "salt in the wound" for the design.
