Samsung Galaxy Note 9 owners may be experiencing a fatal issue on their phones
We were full of praise for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 just a few weeks ago, but it would appear things aren't all rosy for owners of the phone, two years after it was launched.
Going by reports on Reddit, it seems the Galaxy Note 9 has a fatal flaw, in the form of a display issue. This doesn't seem to be an issue originally with the hardware itself, as most of these reports surfaced after the owners of the phone installed the March security update.
The update appears to have messed up Galaxy Note 9 displays, with multiple reports of displays overheating, and or assuming a green/yellow tint. This may sound familiar, as it was around that period that reports of a green tint on the Galaxy S20 Ultra's display also began to surface. While Galaxy S20 Ultra owners had the leverage of their phones still being within the allowed return and under warranty, Note 9 owners aren't quite as lucky. After all, the phone was released almost two years ago.
Reportedly, Samsung has failed to do anything about the issue, leaving owners of the phone with the sole option of replacing their displays outside warranty—with an associated cost of around US$250. Considering how much the Galaxy Note 9 is worth these days, that's a pretty terrible deal for those affected by this issue.
