How You Can Remove The Camera Cutout On Your Galaxy S10?

As most of us know, Samsung is presently selling their S10 in three different variants. You can select the entry-level S10e, the mainstream S10 version or the premium S10 Plus. A 5G version of the S10 is still to come in the nearest future, but its price is still unkwown. Have you decided on the S10 phone model? Thats a wise choice.

The edge screen of your phone makes it stand-out, but not everything is flawless. With the screen occupying space on the front of the device, the S10 could not feature any front camera. So, Samsung had to cut a hole in the device’ displays, hence, the Infinity-O moniker.

Fortunately, the punchouts are so high on the smartphone to make sure that they do not intrude with the on-screen content, but yet, lots of users still desire the same thing. I am writing today about a means of hiding this cutout on the Galaxy S10 smartphone, and i hope it assists you.


How To Get It Done?

If you are not bothered about sacrificing a little bit of screen to avoid the camera cutout, there is an option to consider. Do not try to have it hidden, why not remove it totally?

This can be done seamlessly by heading to Settings and then selecting Display > Full Screen Applications. The first visible option displayed to you is Hide Front Camera. Simply ON the switch close to the Hide Front Camera.

Doing that will include a black bar at the top of your phone. Even if this will hide the hole-punch effect, it will make it appear like there is a thicker bezel up top. It will also look unequal as the bottom will not adjust to provide a better balanced display placement between the forehead and the chin.

The back bar will keep showing on other watching modes like full screen video and camera.

What You Should Know About The Galaxy S10

It was a fitting 10th anniversary device for Samsung as it gets a passmark for its triple-lens rear camera that snaps ultra-wide pictures. It also has an in-screen fingerprint sensor that does the job for you plus Wireless PowerShare that delights your friends. That is an unexpected number of changes from previous phones but its high cost should make up for that.

Its features include:

Weight: 157g
Dimensions: 149.9 x 70.4 x 7.8mm
OS: Android 9
Screen size: 6.1-inch
Resolution: QHD+
CPU: Octa-core chipset
Storage: 128/512GB
Battery: 3,400mAh
Rear camera: 16MP + 12MP + 12MP
Front camera: 10MP


Released on March 8, 2018, several lovers of the brand started pre-ordering before it even got launched. The screen failed to dash the hopes of users as they are so apt, “our competitors are even using them” according to Samsung brand manager, Paul Guzek, which was obviously an Apple dig.

Samsung actually made a very bold move with the Galaxy S10, due to its punch-hole approach, they decided to no longer have anything to do with the larger top and bottom bezel from 2018 and gave to the world, a more robust face in the process.

The device possesses 12-megapixel wide-angle lens that is able to swap between f/1.5 and f/2.4 settings, and a 16MP ultra-wide lens at f/2.2 and a 12MP telephoto lens at f/2.4. This versatility makes the entire experience with the camera, a beautiful one.

Also, the Samsung’s Exynos 9820 chip powers the Galaxy S10 in European countries while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in America, and both aid a very rapid performance.

With Samsung’s 3,400mAh battery, you worry less about your device shutting down after a short period of time and it even offers wireless charging.

As for storage, Samsung has you covered with 128GB that can be upgraded to 512GB, including a microSD option.

All in all, it is a device you do not regret paying for.
