The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is undoubtedly an impressive piece of hardware. It costs a massive US$1400 and most would expect it to be perfect at that price point. Sadly, it isn't, as it still suffers from acute autofocus issues, and what appears to be a display defect only compounds issues.

While the Galaxy S20 series has been widely hailed as being solid devices, the phones have also come under criticism for their heavy price tags and a slew of problems peculiar to the Exynos models. Apparently, though, there could be yet another issue.

As reported by a Galaxy S20 Ultra owner on Facebook, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra seems to have a display defect or bug of some kind that leaves the display with a green hue. This looks to be rather peculiar, as it reportedly only happens only in a specific situation. 

The phone has to be set to 120 Hz and the lowest brightness setting, and the camera app opened. Only in that specific situation does the display assume the green tint. Supposedly, though, some users have also had it happen when transitioning from a game to the home screen.

We're not sure if this is peculiar to the S20 Ultra, or if it also occurs on the regular S20 or S20+. Some users believe it to have only begun after the latest update to the phone, so it could just be a software issue.

Does your Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra have this issue? Let us know in the comments below.
