The Samsung #Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been in the news constantly since their launch on March 29. Come April 21, smartphone enthusiasts in the United States are waiting for the devices to land in stores. However, if reports are to be believed then there may be an issue with all the Galaxy S8 devices.

The South Korean company delayed the launch of the Galaxy S8 devices to avoid mishaps, which plagued the Galaxy Note 7. It is important that Samsung rakes in huge sales for the two handsets to recover the revenue loss it encountered, due to the withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.

However, the Korean Herald reports that some early users of both devices have already noticed some issues with the display.

Display issues in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus

Several users in South Korea who have received the smartphones have reportedly faced issues with an unnatural #Red Tint on the display of the devices.

Many of these users also posted images of their red tinted Galaxy S8 devices on social networking sites in a bid to determine if others had been facing similar issues. It appears, that several owners are encountering the red tint problem as Samsung has acknowledge the issue.

"It is not a quality problem and it can be adjusted with the phone itself. If the color still appears to be reddish, customers can change it at the service center," stated the company.

However, Samsung’s solution has not satisfied irked owners as most people shared that adjusting the display setting did not work. The red tint persisted and most of the owners were unable to change settings as it said that the display was “optimized”.

One industry analyst even went so far as to blame Samsung outright for having compromised the quality of the smartphones in a bid to maximize production to meet the expected demand.

The analyst also revealed that the company uses deep red technology to perfect color balance in the devices. However, in a bid to rush the production, some units may have been left with this reddish tint on the display.

Red tint: is this a widespread issue?

It must be noted that the devices have not officially been shipped yet in many countries. So, it is too early to state whether the red tint display issue will be a widespread problem or not. Another important aspect to remember is that the reddish display is likely a software issue.

Therefore, Samsung would likely be able to address the issue with a simple software update. For the time being, fans and future owners of the devices will have to wait and pray for a smooth release. Samsung would be hoping that the smartphones’ sales do not encounter any hurdles. #Samsung Galaxy S8 PLus
