Help Set screen height to below camera setting removed in update?


Apr 2, 2021
Had an update recently (presumably either Android 11 or One UI 3.1, sorry I looked up information on what the update was but my phone tells me there isn't any info on it) that was pretty big, new features like 'Edge panels', and reset a number of my settings to default. However now I can't find a setting which let me set the max screen height to just below the camera. I have checked every setting on the 'Settings' screen, advanced settings for the status bar, and have checked developer options just in case, but can't find the setting anywhere inside those menus.

I have looked around to see if this has been an issue for anybody else but I can't find anyone else reporting the same issue. Sorry if this has been asked I really just couldn't find anyone else asking about this on this forum.
Sorry for the late reply thought this site would auto update. Yes I was able to do this before the update.

I will try to look for some 3rd party camera apps but I think you might be misunderstanding me. What I meant was my screen size for my phone itself, not for the pictures my camera takes. The A40 is a phone which has one of those curved screens which goes to the very edges of the screen, which means it also invades the front facing cameras' space, the invasive space the camera takes up looks jarring to me.


These images should help explain exactly what I mean. The left image is what my screen looks like at the moment (meant to show the phone border plus camera at the top, everything in white is my screen space). But I want to hide the portion of screen in red like the right image shows. This used to be a feature in the past but I'm not sure if they removed it or if its just hidden, even then I'd love to know if there is any way at all to do this.
