Last month we reported that both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ units suffered from a red tint issue. After confirming from multiple sources we found out that this issue is totally random and it’s not related to any specific S8/S8+ model. Android Tutorial had written a detailed article on how to fix red tint issue and it solved the problem for most of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners but Samsung took a step further today and launched a firmware update that optimizes the display’s color tone.
The new firmware version is XXU1AQDG and it weighs around 426MB. After applying this update, the Red Tint is completely resolved and now the color balance is a lot better. Turkey, United Kingdom and India owners have already received this update. The update is currently on the roll as an OTA update but if you can’t wait any further then you can install this S8 and S8+ Red Tint update manually by using Odin 3.12.5.
