Samsung is now rolling out an OTA update that fixes the red tint issue on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The update kicked off in Korea last week, and is now available for Indian and European units. The fix is going out to S8 and S8+ units in the UK, Germany, and Turkey, and should be rolling out to additional countries in the region shortly.

The phone itself isn't going on sale until May 5 in India, but Samsung is kicking off deliveries a few days earlier for customers that have pre-ordered the device. With over 80,000 bookings, Samsung is seeing a lot of interest in its flagships from the subcontinent.

The update comes in at 426.7MB, and alongside the display calibration to fix the reddish tint noticed by a few customers using the S8 and S8+, it includes the usual stability and bug fixes.

Update: Added details for the OTA rollout in European markets.
