Samsung, still not recovered well from their Galaxy Note 7 disaster, might have another fiasco on its hands as a growing number of customers are complaining their brand new Galaxy S8 appears to have red tint on the screen.
Samsung’s new flagship doesn’t launch worldwide until Friday, but the South Korean customers who pre-ordered the device, are already finding issues with it. Numerous owners took to social media to complain about a mysterious red hue on their displays, reports CNN.
Samsung has reacted to the matter, while confirming the issue, their spokesperson said that isn’t a quality issue and it can be fixed in the phone’s settings menu.
However, Korean S8 owners have since rushed to Instagram to cry out they have been unable to get rid of the red tint even after playing around with the settings.
Neil Shah, a research analyst told CNET that the issue could caused from the S8’s ‘Deep Red’ OLED tech, which could purportedly “make the usual whites look reddish” as a result of “software calibration issue[s].”
The tech giant, Samsung has set an all-time high target for its Galaxy S8 sales, but if the red tint turns out to be yet another hardware mishap, it is going to be reputation at-stake for the company.
