Nokia 6.1 Plus "Hide Notch" option is back but you can enable it this way only

06 November 2018 0

That display notch on most of the smartphones today is quite obnoxious, though you get an option to hide it in many of them, it’s not available on every such device. While many don’t care about this unnecessary notch on the top, many just can’t take it. Many companies have heard the users’ feedbacks and removed this unpleasant thing completely but the completely bezel-less display approach is yet to be adopted on a bigger level.

Well, coming back to the hide notch thing, this feature was removed from the Nokia 6.1 Plus reportedly due to the Android One program. But later this reason wasn’t found true and expected that the hide notch feature might come again.

Well fast forward to now, the hide notch feature has indeed returned but not as an option that could be directly available in the Settings. The toggle for the notch can only be activated in Developers Mode but this does give us a hope that the option will come to the end users as a default option eventually.

But as for now, to hide the notch on the Nokia 6.1 Plus, visit the Settings and then tap on About Phone. Scroll down to the System section and find the build number. Tap on it seven times and a system message will tell you Developers Mode has now been enabled. Get back to System and find Developer Options. Inside the menu, you’ll see a toggle called Full Bezel that will bring back the black bar.

For this capability, you must have already updated the Nokia 6.1 Plus to Android Pie which started rolling out just last week.
