The Samsung Galaxy S8 Has A Red Screen Problem
According to multiple reports posted on Korean forums like PPOMPPU and social networks like Instagram, some Samsung Galaxy S8 units' displays have a very noticeable reddish tint. It's not yet sure if this was an isolated case (problem with batch) or it was already widespread in South Korea.
Samsung didn't deny the issue and told ZDNet that it can easily be fixed in the settings:
The Korea Herald pointed out that it could be caused by the company's new deep red AMOLED tech. The Galaxy S8, which is the first phone to use the technology, has two types of joint pixels: red-green and blue-green. Those two greens could cause a color imbalance, so Samsung made the red pixels look stronger and deeper.All Samsung phones undergo thorough testing to meet our high level of quality standards. The Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has applied Super AMOLED and provides rich and expressive colors, enabling users to enjoy a clearer and more vivid viewing experience.The Galaxy S8 was built with an adaptive display that optimizes the color range, saturation, and sharpness depending on the environment. If needed, users can manually adjust the color range of the display to change the appearance of white tones, through 'Settings > Display > Screen Mode > Color balance'.
Whatever the cause is, excited future owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 should test their unit first and try the color balance adjustment before buying the unit.
