Holey Light is a LED emulation app. It animates the edges of the camera cut-out (AKA punch-hole) as replacement for the sadly missing LED on many modern devices.

Additionally, it provides a notification display for when the screen is "off", replacing - or working in conjunction with - the Always-On Display feature. As this display is not around the camera hole, it is aptly named the Unholey Light.

Supports all Samsung devices with in-screen camera hole, and several Google Pixels.



Initial setup can be a bit tricky for a first-time user, but a setup wizard is included that guides you through the process.


This app absolutely requires several permissions to be able to function. If you are concerned about that, you can always check out the source code (or not use the app).

While you can download the APKs here directly, you should preferably use an F-Droid client so the app stays up-to-date on your device. Some clients have this repo enabled by default, e.g. Neo Store or, of course, the IzzyOnDroid client by Sunil. With others (like the official client) you'll have to add this repo manually (see the hint on top of the package list for how to do that).
