    Sorry for the lousy photo from my tablet, but it's easy to see that weird light section in the middle of the screen. Just noticed this today. Any idea what happened here? Note20 Ultra on Verizon. It's persistent across various apps and colors. Is this some kind of screen burn in?-20201128_203506.jpeg

    Does that image outline look like something you been using? Could be a bad screen?

    You're not using a flipcover case, are you?

    No, it doesn't look like any particular app.

    I ask because I think extended direct sunlight can cause something that looks like burn-in as well -- so is it possible the phone was sitting somewhere with objects casting a shadow like that?

    Reminds me of the cheese grater image on the note 9 screen issues. How hot does your device get at times ?

    This might help you.

    Also google
    "note 9 cheese crater oled screen burn"
    Known issue that occurs under certain circumstances, heat etc.

    Its been there since S10. If you want a clearer image, use a UV light and you will see the entire thing.

    But if it's always there then its burn in...

    It's never been in a position where it's sat in sunlight or weird shadows. Never noticed the battery getting hot either. The strangest thing. It just appeared instantly, I swear there was no hint of a defect earlier today.

    Going into a dark cupboard and turning down the brightness on a note 20 ultra or any oled panel is pretty scary. This was on my dual sim note 20 ultra. But they are all similar give or take a bit. Is this some kind of screen burn in?-img_033705.jpg

    Heh, just put a fresh one on a few days ago so not really lol. I'll give it a little more time for more responses and if no one seems to be experiencing something similar, I'll remove it and see.

    Nope, noticed it the first time fifteen minutes before the original post. I restarted the phone thinking maybe some app overlay was stuck or something, but nope, it's physically there in some manner.

    Mine started looking like the original post as soon as I installed the beta. I gave feedback about it but the beta updates still haven't fixed it. It is only on light Grey and white screens from what I can tell.
