Earlier this month, OnePlus launched two of its new devices: OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. As customers started to receive their pre-ordered OnePlus 8 Pro, some of them have faced issues such as green tint and crushed blacks with their screens.
Moreover, there’s an issue of crushed blacks. This refers to grainy artifacts around what should be blacks or dark areas of an image. Moreover, there are issues of color uniformity across the screen.
In a statement, OnePlus said that the green tint issue will be fixed in the next update without specifying a release date for it:
“OnePlus values user feedback and is committed to delivering the best smartphone experience. Our team is currently investigating these reports to identify the best solutions for our users and will issue updates as soon as they are ready. Regarding the green tint, we are working to resolve this in our next OTA.”
If you’ve bought a new OnePlus 8 Pro device, this thread on Reddit takes you through steps for checking the display for the aforementioned issues.
At the moment, we don’t know how many customers are affected by it. But if you’re skeptical about buying the phone because of these issues, you might want to wait for a fresher batch.
