However, this should unlock the item “For developers” in the system settings. Whether Google will add a more convenient way of hiding the cut, is unknown.
Notch on notch off. Current P Android developer option, which isn’t new. Not sure yet if the option Google has confirmed is this, or some kind of user-facing setting that will put time/date/notifs up there. pic.twitter.com/4cpebmUoYq
