One of the most notable changes on the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is the front-facing camera embedded into the glass, which thus makes it possible to avoid using the controversial notch.
While many believe the camera cutout itself is a different type of notch, Samsung wanted the Galaxy S10 to meet the expectations of all its customers, so the device comes with software tweaks to allow it to do that.
So while the camera cutout might be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of feature, Samsung allows users to hide it using a trick that we’ve seen being used on the iPhone X and other phones coming with a notch.
The Galaxy S10 thus comes with a dedicated option in the settings screen called “Hide front camera,” which “adds a black bar to the top of the screen so the front camera won’t be visible.”
In other words, the Galaxy S10 will get a black bar at the top that will simulate a larger black bezel, with the camera cutout being part of it.
