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 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?
