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.

It is obvious that Asus will not say anything and that it is probably a hardware problem, but we will slow it down, the red tint appears when the screen brightness drops to less than 50%, then the truth. Who uses the brightness to less than 50%? In that video it is clear that you have to minimize the brightness for the red dye to appear and nobody to shine the brightness levels to that end

It is a hardware issue, that's why there is no response from Asus. Feels cheated after buying this phone.

Just so people know, this is likely a software issue. It'll likely get addressed eventually. You can read more at

The explanation in XDA forum sounds logical. If this is the case, as long as we have accurate colours playing games, taking and watching pictures and videos, does it really matters if the shade of grey in the notification center is redish? If colour accuracy is affected all the time, that would be a real problem.
