Samsung releasing a firmware update to fix some Galaxy S III problems
We have already reported about some Samsung Galaxy S III units, especially those with 16GB of storage, suffering from a problem called “Sudden Death”. The issue has been found to arise due to faulty motherboards. Even though Samsung offered no official acknowledgement of the problem, it reportedly repaired or exchanged defective units free of charge.
Now, a recent report claims that Samsung has finally acknowledged the issue, and will actually soon release a software update which will prevent Galaxy S III units from “sudden death”. According to the report, the source of the problem is a firmware bug found in Samsung’s ROM (as well as custom ROMs).
The healing update is expected to be rolled out as soon as possible.
