Verizon spreads Galaxy S8 update with fix for red tint display problem


Verizon is the latest carrier to issue an update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+' 'Red Tint' display issue. Software version NRD90M.G950USQU1AQDF for the Galaxy S8 and NRD90M.G955USQU1AQDF for the Galaxy S8+ is now live and seeded over-the-air. In addition to providing adjustments for the display's color temperature, the build improves device performance and fixes the "DQA keeps stopping" pop-up error on some phones.

To fix up your screen, install the update, then go to Settings > Display > Screen mode and tweak the color temperature until you like what you're seeing. You can make both full screen and screen edge adjustments, but don't go crazy with this unless you want your display colors all over the place!

The update also contains the Bixby Vision feature, which Verizon delivered in an update from early May. Bixby Vision uses the handset's camera to recognize items, show their pricing information, and take you straight to their Amazon shopping pages.

The fix is not automatic As its not possible for Samsung to tell which panels are affect and how badly now that they have been shipped The fix allows you to tweak the color temperature more So if you have an affected panel, then you can reduce the redness more until its white balance is where you want
