By now, everybody knows that some units of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a red tint issue on their screens. However, it is unclear at this point whether or not it's a hardware issue or software glitch. When Samsung stated that they would try to fix the problem with an OTA patch, what it seemed like that they were planning to give more control over the RGB of the two smartphone's screens to its customers. This almost makes it seem like the South Korean company is not even considering it to be a real problem, rather something that certain customers are being picky about.


If you are unlucky enough to get a device with the red tinge, you should be able to notice it right away. From what has been seen so far, the red tint is not exactly something that will completely ruin your experience, but it's certainly not something that any customer would appreciate after paying top dollar for the device either.

Some customers and even techies are complaining that some of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ displays are currently showing a reddish tint. The red tinge issue was slowly starting to become a headache for Samsung because of all the bad PR that it was bringing to the company. They have only just started to leave the Note 7 disaster behind and move ahead, so this is definitely not something that Samsung would want to see being escalated. Samsung did mention that they will be addressing the problem with an update and they have released that update earlier today in South Korea.


The OTA update with firmware version G950NKSU1AQDG for the S8 will now add one extra setting to the phone's display section, which will give users the power to control "full screen color balance." Hopefully, this will enable users to adjust the screen until the reddish hue disappears. Additionally, another newly added option called the Screen Edge Color Balance can be used to adjust the color balance on the curved edges of the display. Samsung will most likely be releasing this update everywhere, but that isn't official news as of yet.

As you can see from the image, the render of the Galaxy Note 8 looks very impressive, especially because of the red theme which it's dawning. Nevertheless, this is most probably not the official render because it's still too early to be leaking press renders yet. Even if it really is just a fan-made concept art, kudos to the fan who made it, because it sure looks beautiful.


Recently, there have been a lot of leaks regarding the Galaxy Note 8 which has sprung up over the weeks. Alongside multiple renders and a few conceptualized 3D models here and then to enthral the Note enthusiasts, the most significant reports can be summarised in the following points.


• The Galaxy Note 8 will most likely be unveiled at the IFA 2017in September
• It will be running on Android Nougat 7.1.1 right out of the box
• The display will be slightly bigger at 6.3-inches than the 6.2-inch one on the S8+
• It will sport a dual rear camera setup
• The fingerprint scanner will continue to be at the back, but near the center
• The US/Chinese variant may sport Qualcomm Snapdragon 836
• There might also be a 8GB RAM version


We are not sure how many of these rumors will come true, but we will find out for sure in roughly two and a half months.

The Galaxy S10 will be launched in just a few weeks' time, but Samsung has been exceptionally successful this year in keeping the live leaks to a minimum. Still, not that much has been left to imagination as we have seen a a plethora of renders, casemakers' models and even a few live images and videos of the upcoming Galaxy S10 series of smartphones.

Recently,  the color options have also been made pretty clear with black, blue, yellow and red being on the list of possible colors in which the S10 smartphone will be seen. Today we have some of the most convincing among those renders for you, so that you can decide which color to go for when the phone goes on sale next month. Enjoy and let us know which one you like the most in the comments. Personally, I think the yellow looks pretty bad and the most unrealistic, while the blue does look gorgeous.

As you probably know already, Samsung have been facing quite a few issues since the Galaxy S8's launch and although none of them are as large as what happened with the Note 7 (fortunately!), they are there nonetheless. The red tint problem have been bugging a few early adopters of the S8 and S8+ in certain sections of the world and Samsung started to address the problem a few days back when they released a fix for it in South Korea. They have now started to release the same update to its European customers.


The so called fix is however more of a "do-it-yourself" update than a patch really. After installing the update, users will now be able to control the RGB balance of the main panel, in addition to the edges (screen edge colour balance) where it reportedly looked more reddish than anywhere else on the display. There will also be a new option to make your phone look warmer or cooler, depending on your preference. Now we are just waiting for Samsung to address the more serious Galaxy S8 restart problem that some customers are complaining about. Have you faced any of these issues on your Galaxy S8 or S8+ yet?

These improvements had been rolling out in South Korea for a while now but finally it's here in the US. AT&T has started to roll out a single huge update of 480MB to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. It will address the color calibration settings on the two devices so that the users can set the RGB calibration to their liking and get rid of any unwanted hues. Also included is an improvement to the Bixby hardware button which has something to do with the timing of short-pressing the button. Other improvements include fix for the infamous DQA pop-up error and fix for a 5G access point Wi-Fi compatibility issue.


Firmware version G950USQU1AQDE and G955USQU1AQDE are making their way onto the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ respectively. The only difference in-between the two being the size (the S8 may have a smaller file size). It's good to see the update make its way into the US, but what we would have also liked to see is some of the Bixby functionalities which are currently available for South Korean users, make their way onto other regions as well.
