The current Made by Google lineup is visually defined by a front-facing camera in the top-left corner of the screen. You become acclimated to it over time, yet those troubled by the Pixel 5 hole punch would now be able to hide it on Android 12.
Android 12 Developer Preview 1 adds (by means of Android Police) another “Hide” option to the “Display cutout” menu accessible under “Drawing” — simply a little over mostly down the screen — in “Developer options.”
Empowering applies a black bar to the status bar that attempts to partially hide the Pixel 4a, 4a 5G, and 5’s hole punch. The time, notifications, and other system icons stay set up with the new darker background.
There are as of now a few bugs in the implementation, particularly on the Pixel Launcher homescreen, however they ought to be settled as the previews proceed.
This alternative generally exists for engineers, while Pixel 5 proprietors seeing visual issues in applications because of the hole punch are ideally serviced by reaching those designers straightforwardly to fix. All things considered, Android 12 gives a potential solution for those annoyed by the cutout.
The Developer alternatives menu is enabled by heading to Settings > About phone and tapping the “Build number” at the bottom of the screen seven times. From that point onward, visit Settings > System > Advanced to access.
