Display Red tint issue on my Rog 2

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.

It's not a defect. This is just how the panel behaves at very low brightness. You can expect this kind of performance for the life of the device at very low brightness, but it will not "spread" or create different issues.

This a matter of taste and whether or not the low brightness tinting matters to you. I tend to use my phones around 60-80% brightness at all times, so I wouldn't have even been aware of this issue unless it was pointed out to me.

Hi this actually looks bad and people that are battery conservative tend to keep their brightness at that percentage. This and the music option for the RGB lighting logo doesn't look good at all it's very random, i was trying to show it to my friend and it was very awkward because it didn't hit a single beat. If you could somehow get it's input to be from a low pass ,it could only pick up the bass. That's a start. But right now i cant show it off and it looks dumb hahahaha, please do something about the lighting.

Also please give us access to more cool "x mode" triggered live wallpapers. Add a section in your themes and wallpapers application specifically for live wallpapers.

I just received the replacement. The red tint is still there but much less as compared to my previous device, so this confirms this is a panel behavior, which means if you are planning to replace the device it might be good or bad ie the new device might have less tint or more tint.

r/GooglePixel - P4XL 30% brightness + Forced 90hz = Severe black crush, unusableSeems like an universal amoled issue which arises due to higher refresh rates

I just tried myself ; switching the refresh rate does change the result. However, it does not fix completely the problem, I see the red tint on a darker gray (212121)
