How To Enable Hide Notch Option In Nokia 6.1 Plus

HMD Global launched Nokia 6.1 Plus ₹ 15,999 in July and made it available in India in August. This display came with a notch, though the setting had the option of hiding it. Users who were not big fans of the display note screen had the option to fill the gap with a black strip, which was not a note screen for users. However, that option was removed with the August security patch, and users were disturbed. Now, the company has brought the option back with the latest Android 9.0 pie update, and here's how you can enable it.

Nokia 6.1 Plus users started receiving stable updates of Android 9.0 pounds a few days ago. This update introduced many new OS features such as adaptive batteries, Google lens integration, and more, but it also brought the 'hide' option back. However, this option is only available in developer options. To hide the footprint, Nokia 6.1 Plus users need to enable developer options by scrolling to Settings> About Phone> System section to see the build number. Tapping the build number seven times will enable the developer option. Now, you can go to the developer options from the System Settings menu, and you will get the 'full bezel' option here. Tap on a cover to hide it, and you can turn it on or off whenever you want. MySmartPrice was the first person to see the return of this facility.

While addressing the users' complaints of missing hidden notch options, HMD Global responded first, "Unfortunately we had to hide the hidden options as per Google requirement." That comment was pulled from the forums, but it made things clear that it was Google that did not give the option of switching users from 'full mode', which was a modak mode in 'complete bezel' mode. To remember, Nokia 6.1 is a part of the Android One program, which means that Google's software is tightly rooted in software improvements.

In any case, Android 9.0 pa comes with original notch support, and hopefully, the option to hide it is maintained with software updates. Nokia 6.1 plus price in India 15,999, and it is available in Gloss Black, Gloss White and Gloss Midnight Blue Colors via Flipkart and Nokia Online Store.
