Google is working on a fix.
While it’s safe to say that Google’s Pixel 3 smartphones are among the best in the market, it’s also prone to some software bugs. One of these is the random appearance of another notch on the bigger Pixel 3 XL.

Other YouTubers and even users who already have their units have posted on Reddit confirming the bug. Many already expressed disappointment on the rather deep notch found on the Pixel 3 XL, so this bug comes as rather hilarious.
The good thing is that Google has already acknowledged the bug and is issuing a fix. For affected users the bug isn’t permanent, a simply restart should bring everything back to normal.
