Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ to launch in India today

Galaxy S8 owners complain of 'red-tinted' display borkage

A developer who was working on a Button Mapper app that would have allowed Galaxy S8 users to reassign the button to something else discovered that his app stopped working after his S8 received a system update from Samsung via Telus in Canada. It has got an aspect ratio of 18:5.9. Despite once saying that the Galaxy S8 "lacked attractive selling points" compared to the iPhone 8, Kuo is raising his shipping estimates for the device.

The problem could also be attributable to the fact that while traditional LCD panels use red, green and blue, the Super AMOLED adopted by the Galaxy S8 in particular uses a two pixel arrangement of red-green and blue-green. The company has also upped the security feature with an iris scanner, face recognition and fingerprint scanner - moved to the back of the device - to unlock the device.

The smartphones will be available from May 5, while they can be pre-booked starting today. The dual-cameras will include 3x optical zoom, 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual OIS. After the whole Bixby controversy, it seems now that users are complaining about the reddish tint that they see in their display panel. "The Samsung galaxy s8 and s8 plus is water and dust resistant (IP68 rating)". On the connectivity front, both the devices support Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, USB Type-C, GPS, GLONASS and 4G LTE.

There's no estimate on the number of units affect and whether the issue would exist on the Galaxy S8 phones sold outside Korea. The phone features a 6.2 inch Quad HD+ Display screen. Samsung already confirmed that the Bixby button can't be used with any other features.

Under the hood it runs the Exynos 8895 octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz. The smartphone is expected to be available on both online and offline retailers.
