OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched last month with some stunning hardware and software features. It features Android 10 based Oxygen OS 10.5 firmware update out of the box. The OnePlus 8 Pro in particular features the stunning 120 Hz screen refresh rate on a QHD+ display. However, that comes with a price. Lately, a significant amount of users have been reporting screen issues like green tint, black crush, even dark bar on the screen. In order to address these issues, the manufacture quickly released Oxygen OS 10.5.5 software update for the 8 Pro. Though it did not fix all of the screen issues with the 8 Pro, here is a new Oxygen OS 10.5.6 available for the 8 Pro that may have a possible fix.
While the Oxygen OS 10.5.6 update log (listed below) does not reveal any screen issues, according to some users, the update may have a possible fix; but only a partiality fix for the greed tint. After the update, when you switch DC dimming ON, the green tint doesn’t show up. Whereas, with DC dimming OFF, it still shows some green tint; but much better than before. As for the black bar and black crush, it may come later.
