Immersive mode as implemented by Samsung on Note 20 Ultra is crippled, doesn't span the display area over the full display, only hides the status bar. The effective visibility area for apps is without the top bar around the camera cutout.

To enable full immersive mode:

— install Magisk module “None Display Cutout”;
— reboot:
— System Settings ⇨ Developer options ⇨ Simulate display with cutout ⇨ No display cutout - MlgmXyysd

Now the display area will use the full screen and be significantly bigger.

Or you can just use System Tuner UI from the play store and with a couple adb commands get the same thing. Enclosed are a couple of examples.

I've read many reports that System UI Tuner doesn't work like this — it only hides the status bar, but doesn't move the displayed area and stretch it over the full screen.

Instead it displays a black strip on top of the display around the camera cutout.

The way with the Magisk module works — I'm using it — it increases the displayed area significantly.

Correct. ??
