News coming on the May update for the Samsung Galaxy S10, suspended by the company a few hours ago due to the difficulties users complained about. The OTA update with the latest security patches had causes Galaxy S10 phones to freeze while using several popular apps, including Twitter and Nova Launcher. The apps themselves aren’t at fault, as it’s clearly the new software version that’s causing the forced restarts.
Users have posted details on the issue on Reddit and the xda-developers forum, revealing different types of “freezes.” In some cases, long pressing the power button brings up unresponsive on-screen buttons, but the phone restarts automatically. Others have noticed that pressing the power button turns off the screen, but the phone doesn’t actually lock. Furthermore, the fingerprint sensor might become slow, or it might even stop working altogether.
The news concerns the reception of a further update on some Swiss Samsung Galaxy S10. An operation on which, however, we do not yet have details; it is possible that the company has started the release of a new build (XXU1ASE6, the previous one was the XXU1ASE5) to provide the latest security patch and at the same time bug-free firmware.
Indeed, more than possible it is likely that this is precisely the firmware in charge of forgetting the misstep made with the previous one, which had started its own rollout from Switzerland. We do not know how fast the release proceeds, but in order to be sure from the first installations that this time everything is going the right way, Samsung has preferred to proceed more slowly than in the past.
