- Some owners complain OnePlus 8 Pro is showing green screen at 120Hz refresh rate and low brightness
- Switching DC Dimming off isn’t helping either as it leads to ‘black crush’ issue
- OnePlus is investigating the matter and working on a fix to arrive via an OTA update
Some early OnePlus 8 Pro owners have reported display issues with their newly purchased smartphone. The latest flagship from OnePlus, which has started shipping in select countries, is showing green screen tint and black crush issues at low brightness. A user has shared a side-by-side comparison of OnePlus 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 on the OnePlus Community forum to show the difference. It’s being reported that the green screen issue on the 8 Pro is only apparent at 120Hz refresh rate and low brightness setting. The issue can be fixed by turning off the DC Dimming feature within the handset’s settings; however, that leads to the ‘black crush’ issue (grainy frames while displaying dark hues). The latter forces the screen to lose details in darker areas and result in splotchy patterns.
OnePlus, meanwhile, has reached out to the person suffering from the issue and said that it’s investigating the matter. As reported by Android Authority, the company will “issue updates as soon as they are ready.” There was none at the time of writing this article. We’ll be updating it as soon as a fix is released for OnePlus 8 Pro display issue, so keep watching the space.
