    I don't think the default Samsung launcher let's you. I use the Microsoft Launcher and it has an option to get rid of the status bar altogether. Not just the left hand clock though.

    Yes the time is always showing in the left corner of the notification bar. It can't be removed. This is the way it is in Pie.

    Just download "UI Tuner Launcher" from the Play Store. This allows you to remove the time from the status bar.

    Welcome to the forums. This app won't solve the problem in question, it only works as a shortcut creator for the System UI Tuner activity (called Demo mode after Pie). Some changes on the status bar, like the time, don't stick and you get the original icons back pretty soon. The app description is very clear about these limitations.

    Some of us have tried different methods to enable the hidden System UI Tuner (Nova launcher, shortcut creators ...) and the results are always the same. Some icons, like battery, stay hidden for good and others, like time, come back a few minutes later.
