How to turn punch hole camera notch into a battery indicator on your Samsung Galaxy S20, OnePlus Nord, OnePlus 8, Poco M2 Pro phones
Samsung Galaxy S20, OnePlus Nord, OnePlus 8, Poco M2 Pro have been amongst hot sellers during the ongoing sale seasons. What else is common between these three popular phones is the presence of a punch hole notch. While the OnePlus Nord has a broad dual punch hole notch on the top right corner, the OnePlus 8 and Poco M2 Pro both come with a single punch-hole display. Most users look for cutout centric creative wallpapers and some notch up things by adding a battery indicator around the camera cutout. Yes, that possible.
Thanks to a developer IJP who has created an app called EnergyBar that allows users to add a battery indicator around punch hole notch cut out. This app works with Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and OnePlus Nord dual punch hole cut out and with OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, Poco M2 Pro single-camera punch hole cut outs.
The Energy Ring allows you to put a battery circle around the notch. The App lets you configure battery circle thickness, animation direction, and colors. It can automatically disable the battery indicator when an app switches to fullscreen mode. This means if you decide to Netflix or play PUBG Mobile Energy Ring won’t glow.
