The notch is a kind of slot that most of the latest generation smartphones have in the upper area of the screen. This space contains the front camera and allows manufacturers to give users more screen space.

However, some users find it annoying to have a black notch in the middle of the screen. Fortunately, by downloading the APK file of this app, we will be able to "hide" it. Kind of.

How to hide a smartphone's notch

Nacho Notch is an open-source app that helps us "hide" the notch found on Android devices. In addition, it also works as a customization tool, as it lets us add a black status bar.

This application does not actually hide the notch (as this is something impossible to do with an app), but it paints the area of the screen where it is located in black. Thanks to this, we will see a uniform rectangle on the screen.

It colors the status bar black while the device is in portrait mode.

Additionally, this app includes a settings section where we can configure the bar's design, size, and details. The only drawback is that the app's interface is black, meaning we will not be able to see the design changes live. To see them, we will have to close the app to see how the bar looks.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 7.0.
