So, you’ve recently gotten a new Nintendo Switch, and have started catching some pocket monsters in Pokémon Sword And Shield. And as you enter a new area and wait for the loading screen to finish, you notice a little camera-like notch at the bottom of the screen.
What is the purpose of this thing, you ask? As it turns out, it’s a brightness sensor, as highlighted by Nintendo Customer Support Japan.
Essentially, what this sensor does is automatically adjust the screen’s brightness depending on the amount of light present surrounding the Switch. Though not very obvious, the sensor actually changes colour when it notices a shift in brightness, signalling the Switch to lower or increase the brightness for your convenience.
Of course, you can switch off the Auto-Brightness feature in the system settings if you find the sensor hindering your gameplay experience.
While this feature isn’t present in the Nintendo Switch Lite, we imagine it could be in the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pro.
