Green tint strikes again: Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Tab S7 and S7+ affected

Peter, 24 August 2020

Here we go again – a new batch of Samsung devices are exhibiting the green tint issue that plagued the S20 Ultra (mostly the Exynos models). Now reports are coming in that the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra (Snapdragon version), Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ are suffering from the same issue as well.

The green tint appears below a given brightness value. Interestingly, this isn’t exclusive to AMOLED displays as the Tab S7 uses an LCD instead. All three use the Snapdragon 865+ chipset, however. This may be tied to the screen refresh rate as one user reports that a tint is only visible in 120 Hz mode (the phone as well as the two tablets support 120 Hz).

The good news is that this is a software issue that can be fixed with an update. The bad news is that green tint issues keep cropping up (to be fair, Samsung certainly isn’t alone when it comes to this problem).

Also S10 Lite, A71 have the same issue. Theres no 120hz for them.

All devices with Super Amoled Plus display are susceptible to this problem. It seems chronic especially when viewing a gray image with the screen brightness at low levels. And Samsung? Nothing!

Great Job Samsung! Should make green tint display as a hidden feature. "Samsung isnt alone facing this issue, as apple and xiaomi face it too". Yeah right because Shamesung made their screen! Duh!
