The South-Korean electronics giant Samsung has finally announced the much-awaited Galaxy smartphone in 2019. The company has launched a Galaxy series of devices such as Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy S10 5G. Although the front camera cutout looks awesome normally when you enter in a full-screen mode, you would probably feel irritated for that punch-hole. So, here is the guide – How to Hide the Front Camera cutouts on the Samsung Galaxy S10.
Why need to Hide the Front Camera Layout on Galaxy S10 series devices
After coming from the wider notch > waterdrop notch > punch-hole camera cutout in display generation, this is the first time when Samsung has launched a notched display phone. The new Samsung’s latest flagships come with front camera cutout display on the upper right side corner. These cutouts look great and trendy as well in 2019. Meanwhile, Samsung offers a nice lighting animation to the cutout while switching between apps. But here’s a catch. All the Galaxy S10 variants do have that cutout whether for a single camera or above.
The main concern of these camera cutouts that there is almost 1mm of a gap between the cutout and the screen on the upper right corner which quite annoying for full-screen viewing mode.

That’s why some of the users who can find it unnecessary or irritating, you can easily hide the cutout by enabling the customized virtual bezel on the top. This will hide the camera punch-hole completely and would give your device a new but traditional look. However, this will cover almost 0.3mm or more display area from the top but can be useful as well.
The best part is that you can simply turn off the front camera layout and make it clean from your own Galaxy S10 device Settings option. You don’t need to install any app or customize anything externally. In order to hide the front camera cutout, go to the device Settings > Display > Full-screen apps > Hide front camera.
The setting also offers to hide or unhide the selfie camera cutout on any apps from the list. That will definitely come in handy for full-screen multimedia experience and during gameplay. However, the virtual bezel seems quite thicker than the bottom bezel as a comparison. But you can enable it from the device itself which is a good option.
