Samsung has already initially stated that the "problem" could be easily fixed with manual calibration. But, as a preemptive measure, the South Korean smartphone giant has decided to roll out an update to fix the "issue" directly and increase the color range. Samsung will expand the color range of its screen via software where you can set any red "tint" even lower.

"The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are equipped with Super AMOLED displays to provide rich, expressive colors and optimal color range, saturation and sharpness depending on the environment. In the past, we have received feedback that consumers wanted the ability to customize the color setting of their Galaxy devices due to natural variations in displays, and we provided the option to do so in previous software updates. While the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have the ability for the user to modify the color of the display, Samsung has listened to feedback and has decided to release a software update as early as next week which will provide customers with a further enhanced ability to adjust the color setting to their preference."

After the Note 7 fiasco, it is only logical for Samsung to fix any potential trouble with its new promising flagship smartphone as quick as possible.
