    Android Oreo’s colour management should help ensure consistency across the wide range of displays and display tech used on Android phones. Ultimately it’s up to the manufacturers to calibrate their devices well, but at least they have the tools they need to do that.

      Will this allow apps to skew colours on particular devices to get true tone/colours? Like less vivid reds on samsung devices?

        Yep, it should, but it really does come down to the manufacturers correctly calibrating their devices. Right now, they seem to be intentionally choosing brighter and richer colours over making their displays more accurate, similar to how most TVs are badly set up by default.
