South Korean Samsung Galaxy S8's Owners Facing Reddish Display Issue

For your reference, a normal LCD display panel in a smartphone uses three subpixels namely red, green and blue, while Samsung Galaxy S8's OLED panel uses two subpixels which are red-green and blue-green.

Two versions of the Galaxy S8, code-named Dream internally, were launched at a media event in NY on March 29, with 6.2-inch (15.75 cm) and 5.8-inch curved screens - the largest to date for Samsung's premium smartphones.

That's according to flar2, the developer behind Button Mapper, an app that lets you remap your phone's hardware keys for various actions.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has no bezels and physical home button, but comes with curved edges and run by Bixby. Although iPhone's are also known for longer battery life, yet once empty, it becomes frustrating to charge them as they lack fast charging. There is also 64GB of internal storage which can be further expanded via a microSD card upto 256GB. The pricing for these phones might be very close to those price tags.

In India, the Galaxy S8 is powered by Samsung's Exynos 8895 processor built using the latest 10nm processor. On the front, there is an 8MP camera this time around, again with the same f/1.7 aperture. Other details about the handset are not available, but we'll update you as soon as we get to hear more about it.

Lastly, both smartphones come with facial recognition support, an Iris scanner, Samsung Knox, IP68 dust and water resistance, Samsung Pay and earphones tuned by AKG.

Samsung has landed itself into a fresh controversy in South Korea centered on the Galaxy S8's display.

We don't know what kind of specs the next phone will offer, but the current J5 model sports a couple gigs of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 alongside a modest 720p HD display.
