OnePlus 8 Pro 'Black Crush' Display Issue Is Not A Hardware Problem

OnePlus 8 Pro AM AH 3

OnePlus has confirmed that a software update can and will fix the ‘black crush’ display issue on the OnePlus 8 Pro, so it's not a hardware problem. This information has been reported by GizmoChina, but claims that it’s only conducting information from OnePlus.

The OnePlus 8 Pro display has faced quite a few issues since launch, and some of them have already been fixed. OnePlus promised that it’s actively working on fixing the remaining ones as well.

The green tint has been one of the most talked-about issues, and the same goes for the ‘black crush’ problem. The green tint has been partially fixed now, along with display touch rejection on the sides.


The OnePlus 8 Pro ‘black crush’ problem is not a hardware problem after all

According to OnePlus, a fix for the ‘black crush’ display issue is coming in a future software update for the OnePlus 8 Pro. The company did not give out a specific date or even timeframe for the update, though.

So, what exactly is the ‘black crush’ issue? Well, black pixels are basically getting crushed on the display, and thus black portions of the display don’t end up looking like they should on an OLED panel.

It was recently reported that this may be a hardware issue, though that hasn’t been confirmed by the company. The fact that it’s a software issue will make quite a few people happy.

This means that users who are experiencing such issues won’t have to return their phones for repairs and what not. It seems like all issues with the OnePlus 8 Pro display are software-related.

Such issues are not ideal, but at least they’re software-related

Such issues are not ideal on a newly-launched flagship phone, but do note that not all units are experiencing them. This seems to be related to a smaller portion of units the company sold.

In any case, we’re hoping that OnePlus will find a way to fix everything as soon as possible. The company reacted fast on such reports, and partially fixed those issues thus far.


Other than those display-related problems, the OnePlus 8 Pro doesn’t have issues worth noting. The OnePlus 8 Pro actually has one of the best displays in the business, which is why such issues managed to get a lot of attention from the media.

The OnePlus 8 Pro actually launched alongside the OnePlus 8 last month. It is considerably more expensive than its predecessor, and that’s because it includes a lot of features, while 5G is also to blame here.

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro have been available for purchase for some time now. Both devices are more expensive than their predecessors, but still more affordable than the direct competition.
