Google has indicated that owners of the Pixel 3 XL will be able to effectively hide the notch with a software feature. “For people who prefer a more traditional smartphone look, we’ve added an option to hide the display cutout (the notch),” said Google via one of its Twitter accounts. Google didn’t provide more detail. An option to hide the notch already exists in the developer settings of Android 9 Pie. It’s not clear if Google was referring to this, or a separate, and hopefully easier to use, method for hiding the notch. Android phones from LG, OnePlus, and others allow you to hide the notch using software.
