Display Red tint issue on my Rog 2

Star III
I recently received the Rog 2 Indian unit, and while tinkering with the brightness I found something weird, that is if I set the brightness from 0-50% the dark grey Colors (like the ones used in google apps for dark mode, and the dark grey color used in the notification bar of the Rog if the system theme is set to dark)
The dark grey Colors at lower brightness (i.e from 0-50%) seems to be reddish.
Below I have attached two pics, take of the Rog 2.

The app used was inshorts (in its dark mode) the one with dark grey color is the real color of the app seen above 50% brightness and the other reddish tint is seen from 0% brightness.
P.s it's not the wallpaper or any specific app it happens with any wallpaper, any app which uses the dark grey color(like google photos, Goole play store dark etc.)  and it can be seen at lower brightness. The thing was very hard to click on camera but I still clicked it.

It's something similar to the S8 red tint and the pixel blue tint.
Yes, in the Rog telegram group I did find another person who has the same issue and hence it seems like a fault from Asus.
Also I tried reaching Asus but as usual they aren't replying.

Dude an LCD and amoled and totally different techs amoled are organic meanwhile LCDs have a backlight

Every amoled has some sort of color shift,grey uniformity thing,and yes DC dimming is a thing too

It's more of a software overlay issue as the tint couldn't be reproduced anywhere else other than the notification panel

The tint is visible everywhere where there is dark grey which is like all the google apps dark mode. And yes this is happening probably because they pushed amoled to 120hz. As for reference red tint on grey is visible in 0-40% range on 120hz while only visible in 0-20% on 60hz.

Also 50% brightness slider is around 15-20% of full panel brightness(475+ nits) without high brightness mode(600+ nits)

I have a doubt does anyone in the status bar the icons are black and white? I play Pokémon Go and I received a notification and the icon is in black and white because in my older phone it was in colours
