Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra have complained about a bug that makes their displays assume a green tint when brightness is reduced. It also appears to be present on the regular S20 and S20+. Thankfully, though, Samsung has promised to fix it.

Earlier this week, we revealed that some Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra users were complaining about a green tint display issue on their phones after installing the latest update. The issue typically occurred when the phone's brightness was reduced, in any app that used the phone's cameras. Thankfully, a fix appears to be on the way.

According to a report by Sammobile, Samsung has acknowledged the issue—more of a bug than a defect—and promised to fix it. The fact that it only appeared after the update indicates that it's likely a screen calibration software issue, as opposed to a hardware problem, so it shouldn't be difficult to fix.

Interestingly, though, the issue doesn't appear to be specific to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as some owners of the regular Galaxy S20 and S20+ have confirmed that they also have the same problem. It does, however, appear to be an issue exclusive to the Exynos models of the phone.
