The Galaxy Tab S7+ is just one of a number of premium Samsung devices launched in 2020 to become associated with what is known as the "green tint" issue. It is a cosmetic defect (at the least) in which an approximate quarter to a half of the display in question exhibits discolorations that may seem to creep in from one edge, and is often perceived as green, especially against gray or dark screen contents.
Complaints among the flagship tablet's owners have been prevalent for nearly exactly 8 months at this point: for example, the German Redditor Civicuss claims to have acquired no fewer than 5 different Tab S7+ units "directly from Samsung", all of which have tints to one extent or another.
Despite this level of documentation, customer complaints have reportedly met with less than satisfactory responses from Samsung. A relevant thread on the OEM's US support website has resulted in a response from a "Community Manager" as follows: "This is not a defect of the device. Our product experts are aware of this. You can eliminate the green tint by increasing the brightness, disabling Dark mode, or setting the motion smoothness while they look into ways to solve this."
On the face of it, this statement (particularly the first sentence) might be consoling in the sense it might confirm speculation that the discrepancy is not hardware-related. On the other hand, the Galaxy Tab S7+ still commands prices of well over US$800 at present; as such, the buyer should be able to set any brightness and refresh-rate level they like and use their favorite dark themes with impunity. Hopefully, Samsung has a more definitive fix for this issue in the works.
