The OnePlus Nord was announced this week and has been quite well received by users as it has quite interesting specifications for its price.
However, today we get the news that the first users to get hold of the smartphone are experiencing some problems with the AMOLED screen.
This reminds us of the “green tint” problem suffered by the OnePlus 8 Pro shortly after its launch, although in that case it could be solved by an OxygenOS update.
This time, however, it appears that there will be no fix via software. In a statement to 9to5google, OnePlus has said that the color tint at low brightness levels is typical of all OLED screens and that the amount varies from screen to screen.
OnePlus Nord comes with a high-quality 90Hz AMOLED display. Under specific low-brightness circumstances, slight screen discoloration may occur due to the properties of the AMOLED screen – this is characteristic of all OLED screens and the degree of discoloration will vary depending on other screen properties.
This is not a quality issue and will not affect daily use or screen durability. OnePlus will continue to seek cutting-edge display technologies and strive to deliver the best possible user experience.
This is true, at least to some extent. Low brightness display tint is common on OLED displays regardless of phone or display manufacturer. The degree of coloration varies from screen to screen, however, and that can be the real problem if your unit is heavily affected.
In that case, you’ll have to turn up the brightness or learn to live with it, unless OnePlus offers some kind of replacement.
