Samsung after a long beta testing period started rolling out Android Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ users last week but sadly, it has been halted due to an issue which was not caught in the beta testing.
After the Android Oreo update, many Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices started to reboot unexpectedly and looking at this issue the company immediately pulled the plug to save itself from further damage.
The company is reportedly investigating the issue internally and start the rollout once again after resolving the reboot issue. Samsung says that the problem has occurred in a limited number of cases but seemingly it doesn’t want to take chances anymore as the last thing it apparently wants is anyone bad mouthing its device before the Galaxy S9.
It is surprising to see that after an extensive beta testing the bug still managed to stay undetected. The Oreo updated was launched in just a few selected countries recently and it worked to the company’s advantage as it caught the issue before it becomes a widespread problem.
The company will be unveiling the successor to Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices later this month on 25th February 2018. The teaser videos of the devices already show a stellar camera which will feature a super slow-mo camera, 3D emojis, and improved low light photography.
