Nokia Confirms Purple Hue Screen Issue for Lumia 900, Preparing Fix

We’ve heard of battery problems on the Nokia Lumia 800, but nothing about a major issue on the Lumia 900. Well, apparently there is one, that involves a purple hue screen issue and Nokia even confirmed it and promised a fix through a future update.

Nokia support confirmed via Twitter the problem, saying they’ve identified the issue occuring on some models. In order to find it you simply need to disable automatic brightness and turn the screen down to low in Settings. When doing that the grays on your screen will look purple all over the OS. The guys of wpcentral made a list of all the problems that their readers found when using the Lumia 900 and they seem to include the inactive camera button that won’t wake the phone, vibrate feature rattling, inline remote on headset issue and the low volume being actually high.

All of the problems were passed on to the Nokia engineers, that are working on them. Just so you get an idea of how bad the purple hue thing is, 3 corporate AT&T stores in Wisconsin had 12 out of 12 phones with the problem. AT&T representatives knew nothing about it, sadly. Could it be a more spread problem than we thought? Hopefully it’s just a software issue, corrected by an update…
