OnePlus Aims To Fix OnePlus 8 Pro Display 'Black Crush' Issue In The Upcoming OxygenOS Update


OnePlus in a statement to GizBot has confirmed that the OnePlus 8 Pro display issues are not hardware centric and can be fixed with a software update. The company is aiming to resolve the 'Black Crush' display issue in the next OxygenOS update. However, OnePlus 8 Pro users might have to wait a little longer for the full-proof fix of the 'Black Crush' display issue as the next OxygenOS is yet to receive an official release date.

OnePlus 8 Pro Display 'Black Crush' Bug Is A Software Issue: OnePlus


OnePlus in a statement to GizBot mentioned, "We are looking into the 'black crush' issue which we aim to address in the upcoming OxygenOS update. Please stay tuned for more information." This clarifies that the company will not offer any refund or a free replacement of the faulty OnePlus 8 Pro, as suggested by some recent reports.

The company recently took cognizance of the problems when some users took to the OnePlus community forums to highlight issues with the phone's display. OnePlus 8 Pro users reported that the AMOLED display shows a green tint when it is set to low brightness.

Notably, the OnePlus 8 Pro broke all the display rating records to grab the title of the 'Best Display Award' from DisplayMate. The phone's 120Hz AMOLED panel has been rated as the best ever screen on a smartphone. However, things are not going in favor of the company's recent flagship lately.

Several OnePlus 8 pro users have highlighted issues with the phone's 120Hz AMOLED panel. OnePlus rolled out some updates to fix the display bug; however, users reported that the black Status bar and uniformity issues are persistent even after updating the device to the latest (10.5.6) software installment.

To recall, the Galaxy S20 Ultra users recently reported about green tint bug on the QHD+ AMOLED display. Samsung was quick to roll out a new software update for the Galaxy S20-series to fix the display bug.


Having said that, the reports of the OnePlus 8 Pro display issues did not surprise us knowing the fact that the handset uses a Samsung-made display. It seems Samsung isn't doing a proper quality analysis of the panels or these AMOLED screens are just not properly calibrated for all possible brightness scenarios.

Whatever the reason is, the very consumers who paid a fortune for these flagship handsets are facing the performance issues now. We hope OnePlus addresses the issues before the OnePlus 8-series arrives in India as it is a major market for the Chinese smartphone manufacturer.
