Samsung will soon roll out a software update to fix the reddish tint on the display of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The company says that the reddish display panel issue is not at hardware end, but rather a software issue, which would be soon fixed.
According to local reports coming from South Korea Samsung will soon release a software patch as early as next week to fix the display panel issue. Further, the company officials also stated that the software update will enhance the colour optimisation feature of both the smartphones and will also increase the colour range that users can set.
For the unintended, many users recently complained about social media or company’s forums that they are witnessing reddish tint on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, which is permanent in nature as they are not able to correct by going to colour display settings. The report, quoting an industry expert, further highlights that the reddish tint might be caused due colour imbalance after the company used deep red AMOLED to strengthen the red.
Meanwhile, the April security patch for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ begins rolling out across Europe. The patch consists of a total of 49 security fixes from Google as well as 16 phone-specific fixes from Samsung. The update carries the build number NRD90M.G955FXXU1AQDD.
