I have a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and I want to remove the selfie/front camera from the phone.
Will removing the selfie camera cause the Camera app to crash on launch, and make it unable to use even for the rear camera, or it will automatically switch to rear every time?
@OxfordI have tried both a nail polish & electric tape, but both of them for their own reasons are failing after a while.
Plus since I have opened tons of devices before, and a Galaxy Note too, opening it and removing the camera is literally a 15 minutes job.
@tom2055why I want to remove it doesnt matter really, but thanks for info.
A Nokia phone I did this before would crash the app when I switch to selfie mode and it would automatically switch to rear on launch.
Also, it would make more sense to me for the camera app to switch in rear view if one of the cameras failed, so the user can still use it until the other camera gets fixed. I guess I will have to find out the hard way if I don't get a concrete answer.
@WallerI haven't yet, I'm doing a little bit more research.
I'll have a Galaxy Tab on my hands within the next weeks, so I may try it on that first. Whatever happens I'll make sure to update, so you or anyone else has info that may help.
As for your case, if Samsung doesn't use any restrictions software side to prevent you from using a different camera, and the selfie camera fits the frame of the Note 20 Ultra, then you'll be fine.
