Anybody knows the trick to uninstall preloaded apps on Android?

I had limited memory left in my nothing phone 1, so I was trying to uninstall some non essential apps to free up some space in my phone. Unfortunately, I could not uninstall the preinstalled app in the phone. Do anyone of you know any trick that I can use.

you will have to root the phone. If you do, you will lose the ability to use mobile payments, do online banking and other services.

Open your Settings app

Go to the General tab and select Apps and Notifications.

Tap on the offending app. At the top will be two buttons, Uninstall and Force Stop. The buttons will be lit if they're active, and grey if they're not usable.

Tap Uninstall to remove it.

Apps you can't uninstall will be labeled Disable or have the Uninstall button greyed out. Make a note of these for later.

This won't remove the app, but it might free up some space.
