Last Update date : 2017.04.11

Leak light phenomenon from window outline sides which happen on Galaxy S8/S8+ is the unique

characteristics of devices that have flexible display window.


It usually appears when using at dark place and it’s not device faulty but normal phenomenon.

Flexible display has unique characteristics which light go spreading to around along the window

due to window panel’s structureSame phenomenon may also appear on previous devices with

similar concept of curved display.


This phenomenon appears to not only white color model but also other colors. But, since white

color model reflects the more light than other colors, leak light phenomenon is recognized more

strongly on white color model.
