Some Galaxy S8 owners in South Korea are encountering red-tinted screens

Samsung removes ability to remap Galaxy S8 Bixby button Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ red tinted screens trigger consumer alert

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus both come with a dedicated, side-mounted button to launch Samsung's very own voice-assistant, Bixby. A section of consumers is already skeptical of Samsung products after the Galaxy Note 7 debacle.

Now however, photos have leaked showing what appears to be a prototype model of the Galaxy S8+ equipped with dual-camera optics on the rear.

The Galaxy S5 remains the most popular Samsung device in the United States and 76 percent of them prefer to purchase Samsung again, according to a report from consumer insight firm Kantar Worldpanel. A software that will be automatically activated by means of a Galaxy S8 button. Samsung also sent invites for Galaxy S8 launch in India which is set to April 19.

"The reddish tint may be caused by a color balance problem after Samsung used deep red AMOLED to strengthen the red", said an industry watcher who declined to be identified.

Samsung said in an official statement that all its smartphones "undergo thorough testing to meet our high level of quality standards". Industrious early users figured out how to remap this physical button, and Samsung apparently didn't like that. Samsung will also be launching the Galaxy Note 8 later this year, which could potentially lure many customers away from the iPhone 7s Plus or the rumored iPhone 8 10 anniversary edition. As per a report by The Verge earlier, XDA Developers had figured out a way to change the button's objective. It had put its weight behind the handset, endowing it with not one, but many new features such as an edge-to-edge display, a 10nm processor and a new artificial intelligence based Bixby voice assistant.

Elsewhere, the Galaxy S8+ has a handful of cool features and perks that Apple doesn't.

Samsung's digital assistant Bixby is here to help, whether or not you want it to. However, it still remains to be seen how many customers who have placed a pre-order actually end up buying the Galaxy S8. The pre-order period ran between April 7 and April 17.
