Strange Front camera issue

Just yesterday front camera started showing color distortion a strip horitantally for few hours then the camera stoped working at all

started showing “UNKNOWN ERROR OCCURRED”

1. Cleared Cache
2. Cleared App Data
3. Safe Mode
4. Factory Reset
5. Flashed Latest official rom via ODIN
6. Tried 3rd party app B612 and Beauty Plus

none of the above worked so I thought it must be a hardware issue I thought i will have to get the front camera replaced

today morning I tried video Call via Dailer and to my surprise Camera working perfectly for Video Call via Dailer but again Video Call not working via Whatsapp Video Call

now I am confused what is the problem hardware or software issue

Re: S8+ strange front camera issue

exact same problem here. front camera 95 percent of times say unknown error, 5 percent of times front camera works for 5 seconds but it has color distortion. tried *#7353# and front camera works. what should i do? ? seems like it's a problem samsung has to fix!

In that case, definitely reach out to Samsung directly via Phone (1-800-SAMSUNG/1-800-726-7864) to set up a repair. Naturally you can also reach out to your carrier to see if they have a different option you might like more or maybe someone here in the Community has some other ideas!
