The Nokia 6.1 Plus is a bizarre savage in HMD Global’s phone lineup. It’s decidedly a mid-range phone—and a flattering plain one during that—sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset with adult to 6GB RAM, an FHD+ IPS LCD 5.8″ display, 16 MP + 5 MP twin behind camera sensors, and a morally sized 3,060 mAh battery. But what’s polarizing about this mid-range device is a arrangement notch. It’s a rather tiny one in that a allied to a one on a OnePlus 6, yet it’s assimilated by a thick bottom bezel with a Nokia logo. Like many phones, you had a choice to censor it, during slightest until it was inexplicably removed in an update. With a recently released stable Android Pie update, though, a choice is behind only as HMD Global had promised—but not in a approach you’d expect. It’s indeed dark divided this time around.
To censor a nick on a Nokia 6.1 Plus after a Android Pie update, you’ll indeed need to go to Developer Settings. The procession is flattering simple, however:
- Enter a Settings app and corkscrew down to System About phone.
- In a “About phone” menu, demeanour around for a “Build number” option.
- Tap on a Build series 7 times. If we have a cue or PIN, it might ask we to clear it.
- After a pop-up observant “You are now a developer!” appears, you’ll have enabled developer settings successfully.
- Enter a developer settings menu, and demeanour for a “Full bezel” option.
- Enable it. The standing bar should be blacked out now.
The procession is flattering identical to how to censor a nick in a Google Pixel 3 XL. In a opinion, though, HMD Global should make this a user-facing option, given many people share a opinion that arrangement notches are aesthetically unpleasing and spin to apps like a Nacho Notch to censor them.
