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.

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.
