However, the update was delayed in North America due to carrier restrictions, more specifically in the United States. Latest OxygenOS 10.5.8 OTA features possible HotFix for display problems. This includes the notorious green tint and black crush screen problems found specifically in the OnePlus 8 Pro. So if your display looks funny, it is highly recommended you update to the latest update. So download and install latest Oxygen OS 10.5.8 HotFix OTA for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro in North America.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched just last month with some top notch hardware and software specifications. However, their reputation is at stake due to the ever lasting display problems. While some say it could be a hardware problem, the manufacturer is determined it can be solved with software updates. According to some users who have updated to the latest firmware did find the green tint and black crush fixed at low brightness; like below 5% brightness. The following video explains it from MoDDing Guy.

Moreover, a user who updated to the previous Oxygen OS 10.5.6 update did find a possible green tint fix; but only partial. 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. You can checkout the source and screenshots here.

The latest OOS 10.5.8 also features April 2020 security patch and possible fix for numerous display issues. According to the changelog, you will now experience better video quality at low brightness. This could be a potential black crush fix; according to 9to5Google. Apart from the display fix, the OTA features power consumption improvements, overall network connectivity and stability for communications boost including 5G, Bluetooth, and WiFi. The manufacturer also improved performance and stability of Wi-Fi transfer speeds and optimized network latency for online games for smoothness. The camera also update with optimized HDR effects.
