Samsung Galaxy S21 Users Report Pink/Green Line Issues After May Update

One user posted on the Samsung community seeking technical assistance to solve the problem of the pink line on their Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Indicating that it was a defect in either the hardware or software of the devices. Another user reported that the Galaxy S21 Plus got a pink line after performing the May update.

This isn’t the first time consumers have reported problems with their handsets’ screens. Previously, users said that the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s display got a green line after a system update. These recurring problems suggest that the appearance of the pink or green line on the display is related to software updates.

This type of problem is not unique to the Galaxy S21 series and has previously affected users of the Galaxy S20 line. After several complaints, Samsung offered free display swaps to affected users. The question remains whether the South Korean company will adopt the same policy again.

Samsung needs to investigate the issues with the May update for the Galaxy S21 line. And offer an explanation to users. They should ensure that the update‘s installation is safe and guide those who have faulty screens. Users who have spent a considerable amount of money on these devices deserve a reliable product that performs to their expectations.
