Install Holey Light to Enable LED Notification on Galaxy S10 Series[APK Download]

Samsung’s latest flagship series S10 phones boast a pioneering and innovative change to the aesthetics of how modern day smartphones should look. Of course, we are referring to the infinity display the device flaunts. It’s an all-screen presence from edge-to-edge. To add to the hardware wizardry, we get to see a display cutout in the form of the punch hole which actually houses the front camera. Amidst all this hardware marvel, one thing which is missing is a notification LED. Well, of course when there is no bezel, there is no place for the LED to house itself on the device. So, this may make a few people uncomfortable that they might miss out on important notifications.

Commonly, when a notification arrives the LED keeps blinking to notify the user about the unseen notification. So, to solve the similar purpose on galaxy S10 devices, XDA developer Chainfire has come up with the App called Holey Light. It is basically a Notification LED emulator app. When a notification arrives on your device, by this App, the edges of the punch hole front face camera cut-out animate serving the purpose of a Notification LED. This App will only work on Samsung Galaxy S10 and its cousins, the S10 Plus and the S10e. It will crash if installed on any other devices.

Now, let’s take a look at the new Galaxy S10 from Samsung. It released in February 2019 with 6.1 inches dynamic AMOLED display of 1440 x 3040 pixels resolution. It’s available in two chipset variants of Exynos 9820 and SnapDragon 855. S10 runs Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box with Samsung’s skin OneUI. It packs 8GB of RAM with 128 GB and up to 512 G of storage. In the camera section, it packs a triple lens of 12(wide) + 12(telephoto) +16(ultrawide) MP. The power section comes packed with a non-removable Li-Ion 3400 mAh battery.
