How to resolve AOD clock’s afterimage appearing issue during screen unlock?

This phenomenon is characteristic of AMOLED device. An AMOLED display consists of 3 color pixels, red, green, and blue, to express various colors. If you switch to a bright and colorful screen from a dark screen, you may see a momentary afterimage due to the difference in brightness.

Samsung is planning to release a new software update at earliest possible to resolve this phenomenon. You are advice to update your software to the latest version regularly.
