Users who have already received the Samsung Galaxy S8 claim the new handset already has a major problem.
Scores of customers who were among the first to get their hands on the device claim the display on their Galaxy S8 has developed a strange red tinge.
The Galaxy S8, which doesn’t officially begin shipping globally until Friday, but some buyers in Samsung’s native Korea have already received their devices
However, the excitement of receiving the device quickly turned to despair when the crystal clear super AMOLED display started to give off a slight red coloured tint.
Users quickly took to social media to vent their frustration, with “Samsung red screen” becoming a top trending topic on Twitter.
These latest problems of course come on the back of Samsung’s disastrous Galaxy Note 7, which the Korean firm had to recall due to safety fears with its batteries.
Samsung hasn’t yet released the Galaxy S8 in Thailand, although it is available to pre-order, with handsets expected to be shipped before April 28.
In a statement to ZDNet, Samsung said the red screen issue can be easily fixed.
“All Samsung phones undergo thorough testing to meet our high level of quality standards. The Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has applied Super AMOLED and provides rich and expressive colours, enabling users to enjoy a clearer and more vivid viewing experience.
“The Galaxy S8 was built with an adaptive display that optimises the colour range, saturation and sharpness depending on the environment.
“If needed, users can manually adjust the colour range of the display to change the appearance of white tones, through “Settings -> Display -> Screen Mode -> Colour balance.”
