Samsung rules out Galaxy S8 red tint display defect

All was going well with Samsung’s flagship phones Galaxy S8 and S8+ post its release until reports about the former showing a red tint on the display emerged. Reacting to the issue, Samsung has issued a statement dismissing the complaint.

Samsung released its first-quarter earnings report during which it made a conference call claiming that the Galaxy S8 has undergone thorough inspection to ensure product quality. This clearly means that the Korean giant has refused to accept the fact that some Galaxy S8 display panels are showing a red tint.

In the words of Samsung:

Due to the nature of Super AMOLED displays, there can be natural differences in color. Users can optimize the color depending on their preferences.

However, last week Samsung did clarify that it will soon roll out a new software update to Galaxy S8 which will ‘allow users to better optimize display colors to reflect their own preferences’.

Complaints against Galaxy S8 started pouring in when users took to online platform to complain of a reddish tint appearing on the display panels of their new phones which, according to the users, remained despite correcting the color display settings.
