LED notifications on your Galaxy phone
With their discreet, tiny front camera and nearly bezel-less design, new Galaxy phones take full advantage of their infinity display. However, to make room for the new AMOLED screen, the LED light from the previous Galaxy phones has been replaced by a new LED lighting system that can be enhanced even more using the EdgeLighting + app, available from the Galaxy Store. You can enjoy a customized lighting experience that will really catch your eye.
The new LED lighting system
Starting with the S10 and later, newer Galaxy phones have a camera cutout with a special feature.
Whenever you use face recognition or switch to the selfie camera, an illuminated design will circle around the front camera’s hole. This will help remind you where to look when you're using the front-facing camera.
Use the EdgeLighting + app to enhance LED notifications
If you like the camera hole's lighting effect, you can make it appear when you get notifications! You can also customize the color and duration of the LED notification using Samsung’s EdgeLighting + app. This app includes additional effects to supplement the existing options in Edge lighting.
From Settings, search for and select Edge lighting, and then tap Lighting style. Or, you can tap EdgeLighting + directly from your Apps screen.
Tap Effect (in the bottom right corner), scroll all the way to left, and select Black hole. Once selected, tap Color, and select your desired color; you can choose between a preset or custom color. Then, tap Duration, and then select one of the three settings available. Finally, tap Done when finished.
Note: Edge lighting needs to be activated to use EdgeLighting +. Make sure to adjust its settings and compatible apps, so you can receive notifications.
