Remove or Hide Notch on Realme 2 Pro – How To

Easily remove and hide notch on Realme 2 Pro smartphone. We have come a significant way from the large rectangular notches that started appearing a year back. To improve the design of the notch, first, the overall size was reduced and recently, brands have started adopting this tear-drop sort of notch which basically is the size of a front camera module. In our opinion, this approach is more pleasing to the eye than the regular boxed shape. Thanks to this tear-drop notch Realme 2 Pro comes with quite less bezels. However, if you are still not a fan, you can easily hide notch using our steps ahead.

For phones with a notch, brands usually add in a built-in option that allows users to choose between whether to have the notch displayed or not. Unfortunately, ColorOS — the skin running on Realme 2 Pro — doesn’t have this functionality. Nonetheless, we have a solution to work around this. Using a simple app, you can remove the notch. This app is available through the Play Store and requires no extra modifications such as root. Furthermore, we have tested this app on our Realme 2 Pro as well and we are glad to report it works great.

Due to absence of built-in setting to hide notch on Realme 2 Pro, you can simply use the Nacho Notch app to accomplish the same result. This app continuously runs in the background and puts in a border around the top edge — the height is varied according to the Notch which in most cases is exactly equal to the notification border.

We have put together a guide with screenshots to help you install and set up the app properly. We have tried and tested the Nacho Notch app on our Realme 2 Pro and it works quite great.

Complete Steps:

Follow the easy instructions below to get rid of and hide notch on Realme 2 Pro phone:

Step 1 – Download Nacho Notch app from the Play Store.

Step 2 – The app would be running in the background when it would be enabled so grant it proper permissions.

Step 3 – Now, to use the Hide Notch feature, just pull the Notifcation panel down twice to edit it and tap on Edit button on top. On some smartphones, it would have a gear icon or something similar to represent editing options.

Step 4 – From the available toggles, drag the Hide Notch toggle to the active toggles panel.

Step 5 – Now, just tap on the toggle to remove Notch.

Step 6 – Some users might notice that the black borders implemented by the app are not round. To enable round bezels, just find the Nacho Notch app shortcut in your app drawer and tap on it. From the list of two options, slide the Enable Rounded Corners slider.

That’s all there is to it! You can now easily hide notch on your Realme 2 Pro smartphone. If you want to revert back, just disable the toggle from the notification pull down.
