SteamOS 3.5 brings more warmth, vibrancy to the Deck’s colors

Valve’s let slip a preview for SteamOS 3.5, the system that runs the Steam Deck, among a few other things, and you can now opt-in to an updated build rich with visual improvements and tweaks—among a few other fixes. 

The biggest single change is that Valve has rebalanced the Steam Deck’s default colors. It’s now using the sRGB primary colors, meaning it has a slightly warmer and more vibrant set of colors by default. By going to Settings -> Adjust Display Colors you can tune Color Vibrancy and Color Temperature, either with a test image or whatever game you’re running. You can also swap back to the previous color set or to a boosted color range that’s more vibrant but will possibly introduce some gradient clipping.
