Sony Mobile offers to rectify Xperia S yellow tint issue

Some Sony Xperia S users have reported a defect where there’s a noticeable discolouration or yellow tint appearing at the bottom of the screen. There’s a support thread on Sony’s official site on the issue and finally Sony has come out with an official response as below:

Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smartphones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius. This is limited to a small number of units and the cause of this has been corrected. Any consumer observing this slight yellow tint on the display of their Xperia S is welcome to contact their local customer service centre and Sony Mobile Communications will resolve this at no cost to the consumer.

Anyone having similar issue here in Malaysia? Sony claims that this affects a small group of users and it happens if the Xperia S is subjected to high temperatures above 40 degrees. Good to know that Sony acknowledges such problem and are willing to provide a solution.
