Samsung has fixed the red tint display issue on the Galaxy S8

After many Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus owners started complaining that they’ve noticed a red tint on the screen of their phones, Samsung has reacted immediately and found a solution for that. The update was firstly released for South Korean users, and soon it will be available worldwide.

The new update released by Samsung contains a new option that users will find when opening the Adaptive Display settings. After it will be installed, an additional “full screen color balance” setting will appear and there will be a slider that will go from “cool” (on the left) to “warm” (on the right). According to Samsung, this new setting will “adjust the colors of your display to change the appearance of white tones.”

This new option will be changed only when users will enable Adaptive Display mode, and they won’t be able to change it when the Blue Light filter will be on. The Galaxy S8 devices will get the firmware version G950NKSU1AQDG, while the S8+ will get G955NKSU1AQDG. In the coming days, the update will roll out to the US versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, then it will be available to the rest of the world.

Another previous problem that the users have complained about occurred when they connected their phones to a Wi-Fi network, as a “DQA keeps stopping” error message was popping up.

And since Samsung has removed the physical home button on the new flagship and replaced it with a new pressure-sensitive software button, some users have noticed that it moves. Some pictures (proofs) have been provided by the Dutch site GalaxyClub, which made Samsung Netherlands to give some explanations on its official Twitter account. Well, it seems that the home button moves because if a single image is left on-screen for too long, it causes screen burn-in. And in order to avoid this problem, to not create a “ghost” on the display, the pressure-sensitive software button has to move.
