Sony has admitted that some units of its newly launched Xperia S series of smartphones have a problem regarding display colouration.
Reports from users have suggested that a yellow tint appears after the phone's operating temperature crosses a certain threshold.
The Japanese tech giant has released a statement that was sent to CNET UK: "Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smartphones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperature above 40 degree Celsius." The company has promised to resolve the problem at no cost to the consumer and has asked affected customers to contact local service centres.
The reports of this problem seemed to emerge soon after the Xperia S was released in the markets. The tint reportedly appears in the bottom parts of the screen and is clearly visible in natural light or when the screen displays content with a white background.
