How to Remove or Hide Notch on Huawei P20 Lite

Here is a guide on how to hide Notch on Huawei P20 Lite. Huawei’s latest P20 series smartphones, all come with displays that have a notch in the center. As for P20 Lite, it doesn’t have built-in functionality on hiding or removing the notch by introducing a uniform black border on top. Regardless, with this guide, you can overcome just that. We will be utilizing a third party app that yields the same result as what Huawei offers on the P20 and P20 Pro. The procedure on removing the notch on Huawei P20 Lite has been explained completely in steps given right below.

The new Notch standard is just now trickling down to budget smartphones — the P20 Lite being a prime example. This, however, doesn’t change the fact that many users are still annoyed by it. Fortunately, for Android users, there is still a way out of the notch and that is by removing it through software. By using Nacho Notch, we will be putting up a black border across the top that covers the height of the notch completely. Your notifications will still come up on the top as expected but the notch will blend in and disappear.
