Samsung starts rolling out software update for Galaxy S8 that fixes red tint issue


One of the issues that affect Samsung's new flagships, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, has been simply named “red tint problem.” Its cause is unknown, but Samsung promised to address the issue through a software update.

The South Korean company claims that while this isn't a quality problem, customers can avoid turning their phones' display red by adjusting the color of the panel from the options menu.

Today, users in Korea have noticed that their Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones have started to receive a new software update with build numbers G950NKSU1AQDG and G950NKSU1AQDG, respectively.

The new update adds a brand new setting option in the Adaptive Display screen mode, which allows users to adjust the “full screen color balance.” The new setting is meant to prevent the red tint issue from affecting the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones.

Moreover, Samsung included an additional option called Screen Edge Color Balance in the Screen Mode menu, which does exactly that: it enables users to adjust colors at the edges of the panel.
