Hello, english is not my first language, so sorry for any mistakes.

  1. In godot install the android assembly template (Project> Install Template ...)
  2. In the folder %project%/android/build create folder "res" with hierarchy:

    res:
    ----values
    ----values-v28
    
  3. In each folders create "styles.xml"

  4. values/styles.xml content:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <resources>
        <style name="DefoldActivityTheme" parent="android:Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen">
        </style>
    </resources>
    
  5. values-v28/styles.xml content:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <resources>
        <style name="DefoldActivityTheme" parent="android:Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen">
            <item name="android:windowLayoutInDisplayCutoutMode">
                shortEdges
            </item>
        </style>
    </resources>
    
  6. Change the attribute in %project%/android/build/AndroidManifest.xml

    android:theme="@style/DefoldActivityTheme"

  7. Now you can compilete and ran app
