I got tired of waiting for Samsung to issue an update to the Galaxy S10 series that uses the hole punch as the LED Notification light, so I made an app myself. It displays while the screen is OFF and you can customize the shape, size, and location of the notification LED. I am currently working on updating the app to support more features, customization options, and stabilization. Enjoy!

The latest update, v1.3, is currently rolling out. Please update the app when it is available for fixes to dismissing notifications, ignoring static notifications, and of course, charging! (charging customization features coming soon)

play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.anker.ledmeknow

Features currently in development:
- Charging style
-> Color
-> Animation
-> Shape, size, location

- App-specific customization
-> Enable/disable app
-> App-specific notification color
-> App-specific notification style (shape, size, location)

- General animation styles
-> (Solid blinking (current))
-> Timing customization (how often does it blink/spin/bounce, etc)
-> Solid always (will risk burn-in, but was requested)
-> Spinning
-> Bouncing
-> (etc)

- Deep-sleep mode -> may not work properly, will investigate

Bug fixes to be fixed:
- AOD clock displays after a couple minutes, even if "Hide AOD" is enabled
- Charging animation still displays when screen turns on
- LED shows even after dismissing notification
- Static notifications trigger LED

I'm not a scammer, I just didn't open the floodgates to other countries yet. As I said in the edit, I will add the other countries later. And I will upload the apk here later as well, but I plan to update pretty regularly so the store will be the best option for staying up to date.

Led notification work, but phone doesnt go to deepsleep.

Unfortunately this is by design. I did everything I could to not have to wake the CPU, but because of the way Samsung handles the Always On Display, it was necessary. However, I am currently working on a feature that will NOT require the CPU to run in the background, but the LED notification light will have to be moved elsewhere on the screen. That may be a more suitable option for those who do not want to run the CPU, so long as they are ok with the LED not being around the punch hole.

Yes, that issue came to my attention earlier today via a Google Play rating. I believe it is caused by the pixel density on the device. I developed the application with the highest screen resolution set to WQHD+ 3040X1440. I will update the app with a screen density check which should solve this issue. I will also be adding a customization feature that lets you adjust the exact location of the light. Thank you for your feedback!

Thanks for the support! No worries, when I get back to my personal computer I'm going to update this thread with a list of current in-development features (one of which is going to be fixing/customizing the location). Please let me know what other bugs you find or feature requests you have!

    Thank you for your app. Looks very cool. Does it include battery charging/full LED notification?

    Sent from my [device_name] using XDA-Developers Legacy app

    It does now! :D Please update the app and see that when charging the LED will be red, followed by green for fully charged. Charging style (color, shape, animation, etc) are currently in development, stay tuned!

    The new version 1.4 rolling out now allows you to customize which apps show the notification LED, as well as customize each app's color. Enjoy!

    Very nice, hide AOD feature is a very good idea !
    I donate btw...

    I set the "led" as a circle juste beside the notch, it's perfect!

    I hope It will be possible the exclude some app, the LastPass persistent notification is annoying ...

    Thank you so much for your support and generous donation!! I'm so glad you like my app.

    The customization of which apps display is in development, right behind finishing the baseline led style and charging style/animation. I expect to get to the customization of which apps display (and in what way) by next weekend.

    I'm truly working on this in every free moment I have so please bear with me as I complete tasks as quickly as I can, thanks!
