Is this functionality to enable the LED around the front camera cutout for notifications actually being worked on?
There are third party applications that can light up that LED, but only if the screen is on.
We'd like to know if this camera cutout LED will actually work like the LED notifications used to work on models that had a bezel, even when the screen is off or the device is locked.
If it's being worked on, is there any estimate that can be provided on when this might be available?
the update has taken many features off of the phone. Samsung take absolutely no responsibility for that and because of that they are going to lose loyal customers like they did during the Note 7 incidents when they also took no responsibility until forced to. They have not learned their lesson.
As many have said, Samsung (and Google in their Pixel 3) have chosen to leave out this led in favor of larger displays with no bezel. Any upgrade or app can never act exactly the same. ie. flash different colors for different notifications while the screen is locked. Unless the ring around the camera is not part of screen which I doubt. So when this ring or any other part of the screen is used for this purpose it means that the screen must stay on, even if only a small part of it and that has to have a negative effect on battery life.
I was really looking forward to the S10 but I am still using my S7 Edge because of this notification issue. Once the S9+ drops in price I bit more I will get that instead of the S10. Also, in reality Samsung have already sold millions of the S10's the number of returns/complaints due to the notification LED are so small that there really is no incentive for them to do anything about it.
There is a offical Samsung notification light go to the Samsung app store download edge lighting plus once downloaded click open will take you directly to the setting to set a notification light for the camera cutout
