Galaxy S8 under fire for reddish display panel

Galaxy S8 under fire for reddish display panel

Instead Samsung used the same camera as the Galaxy S7.

So, the Korean electronics giant developed the Deep Red technology to strengthen the red color.

Following an nearly month-long wait after the Samsung Galaxy S8 was launched in the USA, the South Korean electronics giant will launch its flagship device Galaxy S8 in India on April 19.

In fact, Samsung has confirmed this.

Galaxy S8+ comes featuring dual-edge curved display, minimal bezels on the top and bottom, and 18:5:9 aspect ratio. However, many users complained that they couldn't adjust the color because the screen was already optimized. However it seems that some of these users are reporting some issues with the phone's display, namely how it appears to sport a reddish tint. The company also faced supply shortages past year when it sold the Galaxy Note 7, resulting in delayed shipments.

Samsung launched Bixby to challenge Siri, Google Assistant, and Cortana. For models that will be available in countries other than the US, Samsung will use Exynos 9 (8895) Octa core (2.35 GHz Quad + 1.9 GHZ Quad) processor.

Building on the design of the Galaxy S8 makes flawless sense, especially under these circumstances.

The remapping was possible because after pressing the Bixby button the system generated a key up and key down event, which can be intercepted by Accessibility Services.

Elsewhere, the Galaxy S8+ has a handful of cool features and perks that Apple doesn't. Those of you who think they can simply reassign the button to something else - say, launch Google Assistant - should know that Samsung is officially blocking that capability.

If you thought that the Galaxy S8's dedicated button for activating the Bixby digital assistant could be put to other uses, let Samsung disabuse you of that notion.

Samsung's digital assistant Bixby is here to help, whether or not you want it to.

Although not set to hit retailers' shelves until April 28, those who pre-order the phone before April 19 will get the phone as early as the 20th.
