Last week, users of Android were met with the news that Samsung had halted their rolling out of the new Android Oreo update over claims that it was causing glitches and reboot problems. However, they can all breathe a collective sigh of relief now as new reports suggest that Samsung have finally resumed release of the Android O in parts of Europe, with the intention of releasing domestically pretty soon.
The hyped up new update called Oreo had started circulating in specified locations, but users were registering complaints about unexpected rebooting problems where their phones would randomly reboot directly after updgrading. In order to tackle the situation, Samsung halted all operations and got to finding fixes and patches for the issues. Now, they have restarted their spreading of the new Android Oreo in markets where it had already been released the last time, and are currently unraveling the new version in Germany.
The update goes by the firmware versions of G950FXXU1CRB7 and G955XXU1CRB7 for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. For those phones who already updated to the new Oreo earlier this month, or who have Android 8.0 on Galaxy S8 duo, the file itself will weigh a little over 530 MB. However, for those who have not yet upgrade to Android 8.0, the file is going to be much heavier.
With all things set aside, the fact that the new upgrade can now resume uninterrupted is pretty good news for Samsung, as they are scheduled to showcase and reveal the new Samsung Galaxy S9 later this week in the Mobile World Congress that is set in Spain later this week. Had this software issue prolonged and outstayed its welcome, it would have hung as a dark cloud over Samsung’s reveal. Nevertheless, the tech giants have made a swift response to user complaints and tackled the issue neatly. They can now focus on maintaining their place in the pantheons of technological innovation.
