Huawei P20 users can choose to hide the phone’s notch

Notch no more, sort of

Chinese manufacturer Huawei has exciting news for smartphone users who have grown to despise the increasingly present notches on modern devices like the iPhone X and Essential Phone.

Huawei’s P20 and P20 Pro come with a feature that allows users to disable the built-in notch.

Once activated, the display will show a single black bar on top of the phone, effectively rendering the notch invisible while simultaneously providing users with a black status bar.

You can see what the invisible notch looks like in the tweet below:

Huawei’s solution is a temporary fix for what is rapidly becoming a smartphone industry nuisance. It should also be mentioned that Google’s upcoming Android 9.0 P operating system will also natively support screen cutouts, otherwise known as notches.
