Samsung Galaxy S8 News & Update: South Koreans Already Found Red Tint, Bixby Problem With Samsung Galaxy S8 [VIDEO]
Samsung has yet to ship its Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus across the globe. Nonetheless, those who already got hold early of Samsung's latest flagship smartphone line in South Korea already found a problem with the Galaxy S8 device upon release.
Several customers in South Korea who were given the chance to own Samsung's latest flagship devices after signing up for pre-order made it known that some of the Galaxy S8 smartphones come with a bizarre, red tint on the screens. Nevertheless, a Samsung rep stated that the red tint on the Galaxy S8 smartphones could not be considered a quality problem. Instead, Samsung Galaxy S8 users could opt to their handset's settings menu to rectify its configuration, CNET reported.
The extent of the Samsung Galaxy S8 issue remains unknown, but the issue could post as another challenge for the tech giant after it went through a worldwide public scrutiny after Galaxy Note 7's battery exploding problem. Meanwhile, other Galaxy S8 owners noticed that the South Korean tech titan has blocked the remapping ability of the dedicated Bixby button, the only button to turn on the tech company's exclusive digital assistant.
In spite of that, pre-order figures for the Samsung Galaxy S8 indicate that tech fans have not been scared away from devices by the South Korean tech giant. Reports indicate more than one million Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones have already sold in South Korea alone. While in the U.S., carriers like T-Mobile will start shipping the Galaxy S8 model on April 19, Slash Gear reported.
That being the case, the large-screen Galaxy S8 Plus is anticipated to be the more popular variant, but either option would be an excellent choice for tech enthusiasts in the smartphone world for a new all-around handset. The standard Samsung Galaxy S8 is available with a 5.8-inch dual-edge curved display, while the S8 Plus comes along with a 6.2-inch display.
