Optus, Huawei Admit Mate 20 Pro Green Screen Issue

X

After numerous customer complaints on the YesCrowd forums, Optus and Huawei have acknowledged the green-tinted screen issue on Huawei Mate 20 Pro and promised to refund or replace affected products.

As originally reported by Ausdroid, several customers went to Optus’ support forum to complain that their screens were tinting green.

At first, it appeared to only affect a few devices but then began to be reported by more device owners both here in Australia and abroad.

After Ausdroid’s original story, as well as numerous reports by other news outlets, Optus released a statement acknowledging the issue and offering a solution:

“After analysis of a sample of Huawei Mate 20 Pro returns conducted by Huawei and Optus we have confirmed that all units tested exhibited the green tint to varying degrees. Testing has shown that the failure manifests when the display brightness is set to zero and viewed in a low ambient light environment and only when viewing a dark screen. We can confirm that the failure doesn’t inhibit the issue of the handset or pose a danger. We will continue to offer a replacement from good stock or a cancellation/refund (if you’d prefer)”

A representative confirmed that the issue was mostly confined to the LG display models with very few of other displays — manufactured by Chinese firm BOE — experiencing the fault.

Ausdroid is reporting that Huawei is working with Optus to guarantee that any affected customers have clear options including replacement or refund if required.

Huawei has also given direct contact details to affected customers should they need them.

One Huawei customer posted this email he received on Optus’ YesCrowd forum:
