Exynos has been in news from quite a long time now. As of now, Samsung is heavily criticized for using low-grade Exynos instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon counterpart for countries other than the USA and China. And yet again, Galaxy S20 Ultra Exynos is in the news. This new issue is occurring for many of the customers after reports of overheating and loss of autofocus.
This major issue, where the screen is turning green, is only happening with the Galaxy S20 Ultra shipped with Exynos 990 SoC. Many users have reported the issue on Samsung Members community, and folks at Sammobile has successfully recreated this issue. And this issue is occuring after the April Security Patch, well, just in Exynos.
The green tint is occurring on the display when the user is setting up the phone display brightness below 30%. And if you set the refresh rate like 120Hz, congratulation on getting free hulk merchandise.
However, this doesn’t stop at this condition alone. If your phone reaches the battery percentage equal or below 5%, and the phone temperature touches 40-degree celsius, the display refresh rate drops down to 60Hz. And yes, this issue occurs again.
People at Sammobile also reports this issue at the later condition. That said, this issue is totally happening inconsistent accros the devices.
In all, or say in simple words, this green tint occurs if you reduce brightness below 30% or reduce battery to 5% and phone has a temperature of 40-degree temperature. You already passed the first stage. However, the final stage triggers the flag, thus turning the display refresh rate to 120Hz at the given condition does its job.
Apparently it is a software bug that came along with April Update. This may get fixed with next update.
But the thing is why Samsung isn’t accepting the fault in their Exynos? Recently, after many YouTubers shared their results for the comparison between both variants. But still, Samsung is denying this, which means Samsung is just not going to switch to Snapdragon at all for other countries.
In terms of performance, battery and thermal management, Snapdragon beats Exynos 990 pretty badly, and its been proven already.
