Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have been the latest offerings from Samsung. The company has had tremendous response for both the recently launched phones. The one thing that bothered its users was that both the phones had a red-tint on their displays which was way more than usual. This forced Samsung to act quickly and the company released an update to their phones as soon as possible which fixed the issue. Now, the Verizon network in the U.S is rolling out the same update to users of S8 and S8+ on its network. The update not only fixes the red-tint issue but also has some other improvements.
Verizon is the latest one to roll out an update which arrives as build number G950USQU1AQDF to Galaxy S8 and as build number G955USQU1AQDF to Galaxy S8+. The first notable change brought about by the update is improvements to the screen settings which enables you fine tune the Infinity Screen on your Galaxy device as per your choice. Once the update has been installed, you can go to Settings > Display > Screen Mode to treat the red tint on your display.
We have also known that apart from the above mentioned problem, the OTA also brings another equally important change which was introduced by the new firmware , it is the addition of shopping feature for Bixby Vision. Samsung has partnered with five standalone apps for Bixby Vision to improve the user experience: Amazon for shopping, Pinterest for similar images, Foursquare for identifying places and landmarks, Google Translate for translating text and Vivino for Wine search. This Verizon update for Bixby Vision works for the Amazon shopping app.
Other changes brought about by the update include fix for the pop-up error of ‘DQA keeps stopping’ and other essential bug fixes. The update may come to you sooner or later as it is a staged rollout but make sure to download it as it comes to your device.
