Although this patch has been around for a while, it is now finally available for AT&T users as well. Once applied, it offers an easy way for Galax7 S8/S8+ users to eliminate the red tint issue.

Samsung's latest flagships seem to have quite a few problems to face these days. Fortunately, most of them can be solved with a simple software update. The red tint display issue has been solved earlier this month, when the software patch that takes care of it has begun its rollout in South Korea, Europe, and India.

In the US, T-Mobile users with compatible handsets received the update more than a week ago. This week, Canadian carrier Telus announced that all Galaxy S8/S8+ units on its network would get the red tint fix patch, while Bell users should get it these days as well.

At last, we have AT&T - the update began its rollout yesterday. Having a size of around 139 MB, this patch also comes with a few general performance tweaks and other bug fixes as well. After it has been applied, Galaxy S8/S8+ users can go to Settings>Display>Screen Mode and use the color balance slider that helps to eliminate the red tint problem for good.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
