Maybe the illuminated displays and that eerie bright table threw the sensor off in the camera that he used to make the video?
If you look at the background, which appears to be a white table illuminated by tungsten lighting, the video camera appears to show it as white at the beginning, which means the video cam is white balancing on the table, but toward the middle, the table starts appearing a lot warmer in color temp, which means that the camera decided to choose something else as the basis for white balance. That will definitely cause the changes in tint in the phones' display as seen by the video camera.
