After multiple reports of green tint displays from owners of the OnePlus 8 Pro, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, iPhone 11 Pro series, and Galaxy Tab S7 series, it appears the issue also plagues Samsung's older Galaxy S10 series. One case, in particular, showing a tint spreading from the S10e's hole punch.
Ricci Rox,

Green tint has slowly turned into a popular issue with recent OLEDs. There were reports with the Galaxy S20 Ultra earlier this year, with similar reports coming from OnePlus 8 Pro owners and then iPhone 11 Pro series. The most recent cases were with the new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7, and Galaxy Tab S7+. It appears that the issue isn't just peculiar to the current generation of smartphones, however.

Going by multiple accounts, the Galaxy S10 series also seems to be plagued by the green tint issue. It's entirely curious, as the S10 series featured 60 Hz panels, unlike the high-refresh-rate panels used on most of the devices that have also suffered from similar ailments. 

It's unknown what exactly causes this issue. Complaints from a first-hand owner seemed to imply that the tint appeared after installing the latest security update, but there have also been similar complaints from other owners way before this. Again, it's important to point out that all of the phones with this issue sport OLEDs made by Samsung. Correlation doesn't imply causation, of course, and the fact that Samsung makes most of the premium OLED panels on the market right now probably skews the odds.

Do you have green tint on your Galaxy S10 or any older Samsung device? Let us know in the comments below.
