Nokia 6.1 Plus latest update brings back "Hide Notch" feature

28 December 2018 2

The Nokia 6.1 Plus “Hide Notch” feature is now available as a new Setting feature for the users, thanks to the latest update. The “Hide Notch” feature was removed from the Nokia 6.1 Plus back in September and the reason behind this removal went into a kind of confusion. However, it came back in November but not as a visible Setting option for everyone. Those who managed to pull it back know how they did it.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus came up with a simple toggle that allowed the users to mask the notch so that they could see uniformity in the top and bottom bezels. The display notch has more or less bothered everyone, so the company took care of the feedback of the users and brought this ability to its device. However, later on, the removal of the feature received quite a backlash.

It was only in the last month when the feature came back but only in the developer mode. It gave us a good sign that this toggle button will come for everyone some day and today, we are seeing it happening. It's worth mentioning the "Hide Notch" feature was expected to come with the Android Pie update but it didn't happen and it rather came up via a new update.

The latest update also brings ‘Pro Camera’ mode to the Nokia 6.1 Plus so that the users could fine-tune the camera settings, for instance, the white balance or ISO.

So, enjoy the uniformity of your display!

This is such a big relief to see the toggle button coming back. It was great to have it initially. So obviously, it's removal was quite hurting :( :(
