Thankfully, this is still Android, so you can opt for something different. The Galaxy S8 will hit the shelves on April 21 in the country. The problem escalated, with the number of users affected, to the point that "Galaxy S8 Red Screen" became the most searched query on Naver which is the largest South Korean search engine. The phone will support the voice activated assistant Bixby.

Nova Launcher and Evie Launcher both work well with the S8 once set as default, but Action Launcher 3 barely works, and it's unclear why.

The problem could also be attributable to the fact that while traditional LCD panels use red, green and blue, the Super AMOLED adopted by the Galaxy S8 in particular uses a two pixel arrangement of red-green and blue-green. After the whole Bixby controversy, it seems now that users are complaining about the reddish tint that they see in their display panel.

The smartphones, which have captured the imaginations of the world with their "Infinity Display" and radical bezel-less design are to be sold exclusively online via Flipkart. The Samsung Galaxy S8 have a type C charger with faster charging speed and even an option for wireless charging. It also has professional and auto mode resembling pictures clicked in a DSLR.

Another feature of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ which has made them the most liked smartphones is Bixby. Both phones have the IRIS scanner.

Samsung S8 and S8 plus devices have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-core (2.35 GHz Quad + 1.7 GHZ Quad) processor. Apart from this, Samsung has also partnered with Reliance Jio to roll out "Double Data Offer" for a monthly recharge of Rs 309 where users will 56GB of 4G data along with free calls and SMS per month which makes it 448GB for 8 months. The pricing for these phones might be very close to those price tags.
