Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

It's no explosive Galaxy Note 7, but one particular complaint with the Galaxy S8 is having users buzzing a bit. Not because it's a terribly deal-breaking "misfeature" but because of how Samsung is handling the problem. Or rather, how it is denying there is a problem in the first place. Nonetheless, yielding to outcry, Samsung has apparently started to roll out a software "fix" for the red tint issue on the Galaxy S8, which simply gives users more control over the colors on the screen.

Galaxy S8 home button fidgets to prevent screen burn-in

Galaxy S8 home button fidgets to prevent screen burn-in

If you thought that screen burn-in is a thing of the past, Samsung may have just proven you wrong. Considered to be a long forgotten artifact of ancient CRT screens, screen burn-in might be coming back into fashion, especially with the Galaxy S8. Samsung Netherlands' Twitter account has semi-officially confirmed that the smartphone is indeed susceptible to the phenomenon, which is why the always visible home button jumps ever so little to prevent that from happening.

Samsung insists Galaxy S8 red screen just needs a software fix

Samsung insists Galaxy S8 red screen just needs a software fix

The Galaxy S8 is already receiving its fair share of criticisms not even a week into its launch. But aside from the crippled initial Bixby launch, the most glaring, almost literally, complain has been around some screens. Some users have reported have reported seeing a red tinge on their screens, at least more than normal and definitely more than what is comfortable. While some market watchers theorize it might be a problem inherent in Samsung's Super AMOLED hardware, the Korean giant is insisting it's simply a software calibration problem. And to prove that, it will soon be releasing a software update "fixing" the issue.

10.5″ iPad Pro in 2017, with flexible AMOLED in 2018, says Kuo

10.5″ iPad Pro in 2017, with flexible AMOLED in 2018, says Kuo

Despite the iPad Pro line, specially the 12.9-inch model, somewhat reinvigorating the iPad market, Apple's tablets suffer the same malady as the rest of the tablet industry, with declining sales and even faster declining interests. Which is why Apple's future iPads continue to be the subject of speculation or wishful thinking. And even the renowned Ming-Chi Kuo is not immune to that. According to the analyst, Apple is set to unveil iPads that will break the mold, including a 10.5-inch model next year and one with a flexible AMOLED screen in two years' time.

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.

OnePlus 3 Review Part II: Display VS iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7, and more

We're about to show you what the OnePlus 3's display looks like near the rest of the top smartphones on the market today. This means we're looking at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s. It means we're looking at the LG G5 and the HTC 10. It means we're comparing to the Nexus 6P and the Huawei P9, too. We're looking for brightness, color intensity, and - to a lesser extent - we're looking at screen size, too.

Galaxy X’s rumored foldable display appears before official release

We've heard rumors for years that we'll be getting flexible displays that you can roll or fold up. We'll see a demo, and then we don't hear anything about it for months. Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same. We've most recently heard that the Samsung Galaxy X will be treated to a display that you will be able to fold up and stick in your pocket. And this week, Samsung will be showing off a screen that can do exactly that.

Folding display Samsung Galaxy X said one of 5 2017 flagships

Samsung's first smartphone with a true folding display is tipped to launch in 2017, one of a rumored five flagship Galaxy handsets for next year.

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

Apple might not be radically changing the iPhone. At least not this year. But it won't be long before it does. Contradicting his own earlier report, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst and prophet of upcoming products and features, has pulled forward the timetable for Apple's somewhat new yet familiar next iPhone, which could be the iPhone 8. Instead of 2018, it will be the 2017 iPhone that will get the rumored new display material and even wireless charging. Despite the new features, however, it could be wrapped in a design similar to older iPhones.

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

This latest speculation is both technologically possible but might also be a bit too much, both in its goal and Samsung's legal action. In South Korea at least, it has tried to obtain the trademark for "Always On Display", a phrase that has already been used quite a lot in the tech industry, from ebook readers, to smartwatches and even to some smartphones. If so, what is Samsung's purpose for an almost unreasonable claim? With the unveiling of the Galaxy S7 nearing, it could very well be a feature that the Samsung flagship will advertise greatly,
