Following the snafu that was the Galaxy Note 7’s launch last year, we’re sure that there are Samsung Galaxy S8 owners out there who might be a bit wary about any potential phone defects. In fact just recently it was reported that some early owners of the handset were claiming that their displays showed a reddish tint to them.
According to a report from The Investor, it seems that Samsung doesn’t think it is a big deal. The report claims that Samsung has advised users who are affected by the problem that they can easily fix it themselves by going to the phone’s settings and color optimization. This seems to echo what we heard the other day where an industry expert said that it could be due to the color balancing technology Samsung uses for their phones.However there are some who claim that the reddish tint is due to faulty chips in the handset that have caused the GPU in the handset to malfunction, but clearly Samsung doesn’t think that is the case. During our review of the handset, we did not notice any sort of reddish tint so we’re not sure if adjusting the color optimization settings will fix it for users, but if you are affected by it then perhaps it could be worth trying. If that fails then we guess you’ll want to send it back to Samsung.

According to a report from The Korea Herald, Samsung has reportedly told the publication that next week they will release an update for the handset that should address the issue. A spokesperson was quoted as saying, “Because there are some complaints about the red-tinted screens, we decided to upgrade the software next week for all Galaxy S8 clients.”
