Is your Nexus 5X’s display all yellowy? Google will fix that for you!

The new Google Nexus 5X seems to be shipping with a tiny flaw for some people, as they’re noticing a yellow tint on the displays of their units. As you can see in the image down below, the difference is quite noticeable when compared with other devices.

What’s good to hear is that Google is aware about this occurrence, and is reportedly providing free replacements for those who have received such handsets. All the affected Nexus 5X buyers need to do is contact Google’s customer support, and a replacement unit will be arranged for them.

According to Pocket Now, the yellow screen problem seems to be arising for variants shipping from California, Illinois, Toronto and Mississauga. A Reddit user has posted this image to demonstrate the yellow nature of their handset by placing it alongside another normal device.
