Galaxy S20 update with display green tint fix now widely available


Last updated: April 25th, 2020 at 19:10 UTC+02:00

Not every new flagship smartphone is perfect out of the box. And sometimes, issues can be introduced to new devices after launch because of botched software updates, which is exactly what happened with the Galaxy S20 series recently: Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra owners started noticing a green tint on their phone’s display when it was set to low brightness and high refresh rate.

We heard later that Samsung would be releasing a software update to fix the green tint issue, and the company finally did that earlier this week. The Galaxy S20 series received an update with software version G98xBXXU1ATD3 for the Exynos-powered models three days ago, and availability of that update is now beginning to expand to more countries.

Latest Galaxy S20 update doesn’t fix slower charging speeds

While the update addresses the display’s green tint, it hasn’t done anything for the slower charging speeds we have been experiencing on the Galaxy S20 Ultra after we installed the previous update. Our S20 Ultra units are still taking almost an hour and 20 minutes to go from 0 to 100% charge instead of just 60 minutes or so. We really hope the slower charging isn’t permanent and that Samsung will include a fix in the next firmware update for its 2020 flagship.

Own the Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra? You can check if the update is out in your country by opening the phone’s Settings app, selecting Software update, and tapping Download and install. You can also check our firmware archive to see if your country has received the update – you can also download the latest firmware from there and install it on your phone with the help of a Windows PC.
