Looks like Samsung’s not out of the woods quite yet.
After the explosive Note7 debacle of 2016, the newest Samsung telephones have a lot to make up for. Regrettably, early Galaxy S8 customers have already find a flaw in the machine: the screens appear to have a red tint to them.
The early owners noticed something a little offsome of their screens had a red/ pinkish hue to them. Users posted photos to social media websites and held discussions on the Korean forum, PPOMPPU, to figure out what was up with the altered telephone display. According to ZDNet , on Tuesday, “Galaxy S8 Red Screen” was a trending search topic on South Korea’s largest search engine, Naver.
While we can all agree a tinted screen is nowhere near as dramatic( or hazardous) as a phone literally explosion, Samsung is really not in a position to be annoying its clients. Fortunately, the company says the problem can be fixed manually.
Samsung released the following statement to ZDNet : em>
“All Samsung telephones undergo thorough testing to fulfill our high level of quality standards. The Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has applied Super AMOLED and offer rich and expressive colourings, enabling users to enjoy a clearer and more vivid viewing experience. The Galaxy S8 was established with an adaptive display that optimizes the colour scope, saturation, and sharpness depending on the environment.”
According to the company, to manually secure the screen colour, owners can visit the Settings page and going to see Display> Screen Mode> Color balance . This allows the color range of the device’s display to be changed.
Phew, that was a close one.
