    Just checked today after getting tired of waiting. 480.43MB currently downloading

    Hope this does fix the red issue. I already don't even see it with the display color options but being able to better tune it is great.

    EDIT: So to anyone still confused. This update doesn't really "fix" the screen. In adaptive display, there is an extra option to have the screen more "cool" or "warm"

    I still have my red color balance bar all the way turned down, and turned the new warm/cool color balance moved all the way to "cool". Before moving it to cool, i still didn't really notice anything, but now that the option is there, this very much helps it appear much more pure white than before.

    Honestly play around with it, i never noticed anything wrong with mine after i turned the red color balance down before today, so your eyes will adjust. Thanks for Samsung sending this additional option.

    Just got the "pink tint fix" update on att. My screen had a very slight pink tint on the right edge. The update fixed it. I also cranked my overall white (cool) to the highest level. Screen now looks great.

    Thanks for the heads up. Downloaded and everything is good. Though my phone didn't really have the red tint to begin with, but it's good to know that I have the option to fix it just in case

    Updated my phone about an hour ago. I had the pink edges but not really that bad. Wow what a difference though. Whole screen looks better.

    This seems to be the best setting for my screen. I have the edge setting in the middle. If I move it one click to the left (cooler) my left edge and top turn kinda blue.

    That's my S8+ on the left, iPhone 7+ on the right. Both on max brightness. I'd say the red has been removed from the Samsung. Actually makes the iPhone look pink and I've always considered iPhone screens to be very white.

    Got my S8 Plus 2 days go. No sign of any red tint screen. Update just showed up, downloading now but I don't really need it.

    But doesn't your S8 look to be on the green side now?

    There's more in this update than just the fix for that I believe. 400mb is bigger than the fix and other carriers got. Hopefully good not bad.

    That's what I noticed with mine. It looks green after either adjusting the color balance any cooler, or just removing the red. I had to crank the green down to compensate.

    Honestly, I'm not happy after spending $1000cdn on this. The display on both my Note 7's and my S7E were perfect.

    Yeah, I'm looking for a fix to wireless fast charging. Mine won't wireless fast charge at all. Just regular speed. Also hoping it fixed the WiFi drop issue.

    You are unable to fast charge with the brick in the box? Has this been an issue since you bought it? If so, I would exchange it.

    That's terrible to drop the adjustments that far to get a decent screen, never mind turning on the blue light filter

    From your pics above... your screen looks kinda on the blue/green side compared to the iPhone next to it. :/
