Samsung To Issue Firmware Update To Address Galaxy S III ‘Sudden Death’ Problems

Advertisement

Quite a few of our readers weighed in with their own, unfortunately negative, experiences when we reported about some Samsung Galaxy S III units suffering from “sudden death” issues. While there was no official acknowledgement of the issue from the manufacturer, Samsung has reportedly repaired or exchanged defective units free of charge.

While the issue seems to be one related to faulty motherboards, a recent report claims that Samsung will soon issue a software update which will prevent Galaxy S III units from dying in the future. Aside from committing to a fix, Samsung is also acknowledging that the issue is present, however, on a “very limited” number of units, especially those with 16GB of storage. According to the report, the source of the problem is a firmware bug found in Samsung’s ROM (as well as custom ROMs). Despite lacking an exact timeframe for the fix, it is expected to be rolled out as soon as possible.
