The flagship duo Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus from the Korean major Samsung are undoubtedly one of the most anticipated devices of 2017. The first ones to book the Galaxy 8(Plus) have already started to receive the same with free goodies. However, some of those were reporting of an ugly looking reddish tint on their S8’s infinity display. As the infinity display is the most highlighting semblance of the S8, it was eventually spoiling the user experience on such an adorable device. To fix the issue, Samsung has recently pushed an OTA update for the Korean and UK variants last week. Following the same, the US carrier T-Mobile is also rolling out a firmware update for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus devices.
