Possible cause of green tint

2020-08-13, 7:58 AM

This applies on both Edge and Edge+

 

Out of curiosity, I put all my phones under UV light for sanitation purpose.

 

Here is an interesting part: most of the phones I have, including G6, G7, Z3 Play, Z4, One Hyper, G Power, show purple under UV, but Edge shows green, and it's same green tint.

 

I don't know can it be related the glue which put screen layers together, but if there's something to do to fix green color under UV light, the green tint problem should be fixed.

Do you have a screen protector on the Edge? I think your right about the issue stemming from the optical bonding process and the adhesive used. I know there are some LCD manufacturers that have trouble with the bonding process after resizing a LCD panel. Not sure if companies are now able to resize OLED panels yet. After some time the adhesive might start to separate at edges causing black spots seen in other thread. I do remember someone mentioning the display manufacturer but don't remember the name or where I read it.

This is an interesting observation. I'll be honest, it's beyond my scope of expertise. However, I will pass it along to our engineers.

I was thinking it was OLED related as my X1 Extreme screen does the same thing, but the Z4 is OLED also. I would compare this screen to the Galaxy S7 edge from several years ago. It had the waterfall screen, but never acted up like tihs.
