Due to rising consumer concerns just a few days after the upgrade was published, Samsung is reportedly considering delaying the stable One UI 4 (Android 12) rollout for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Some South Korean consumers have taken to Samsung’s community site to complain about problems they’ve had with their devices since downloading One UI 4. One of the complaints claimed that the update bricked Samsung’s foldable devices.
The problem also extends to various video apps such as Netflix and YouTube, which reportedly stopped working on some of Samsung’s best Android phones. Some Galaxy Z Fold 3 displays have also apparently stuck on a 60Hz refresh rate. The issues are not just limited to South Korea as users in other regions are apparently facing similar problems as well, according to SamMobile. Samsung could not immediately respond to Android Central’s request for comment. However, as per SamMobile, the South Korean tech giant is supposedly planning to pause the update’s rollout until a fix is released.
The One UI 4 rollout will restart soon for Samsung’s recent flagship devices including the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3. A Samsung community moderator has confirmed that the company is working on a fix for some compatibility issues with the Google Play system (via SamMobile). These problems previously forced Samsung to suspend the One UI 4 update. The South Korean tech giant is currently revising the update to incorporate a patch from Google meant to address these compatibility issues.
