Update to correct red-tint display problem on Galaxy S8 and S8+ released on T-Mobile

Earlier this week, a software update addressing the red-tint issue affecting the display on Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones began rolling out in some European countries. The fix, weighing in at 426MB introduced additional Adaptive Display mode options, providing users the ability to adjust color balance and white tones around the edges of the screen.

Now, it appears that over-the-air updates are being distributed to both handsets on T-Mobile to solve the problem. These updates, with the sole enhancement listed as being 'Reddish display fix', will bring the baseband version up to G950USQU1AQDE and G955USQU1AQDE for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ respectively.

According to T-Mobile's support pages for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ users can expect to download under 150MB to obtain the update. However, users should ensure that their device has at least 50% battery charge before proceeding with the update.

With T-Mobile seemingly first out of the blocks in the country, it can only be hoped that other carriers in the US and around the world are not too far behind in releasing the fix to their customers.
