Samsung pulled back the June update for Galaxy S23 due to bugs
Samsung seems to have pulled back the long-awaited June update for the Galaxy S23 series. The original build reportedly contained some bugs that the company needs to fix first. It will push a new build after the bugs have been fixed. There’s no timeline available for its release.
The Galaxy S23 series was long rumored to get a major update in June. Samsung had announced multiple new camera features for the latest flagships. After a slight delay, the update arrived last Friday with most of the promised goodies and an OTA (over the air) size of around 2.2GB. The rollout began in a handful of Asian countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. However, it didn’t make it to any other country.
While it was unclear why Samsung was taking so long to bring this update to other markets, turns out the company has halted the rollout. According to noted tipster Ice Universe on Twitter, some users who installed the big June update on their Galaxy S23 found bugs in the new build. The tipster couldn’t provide further details on the bugs discovered by users but suggested that Samsung has pulled the update from its servers because of those bugs. It would release a new build after fixing the issues.
One Galaxy S23 user commented that they haven’t noticed anything wrong with their phone since updating it to the June firmware build. However, the issue seems to be big enough for Samsung to stop the rollout. The company is already working on a new June build (AWF3). The original build number ends with AWF1. Hopefully, it wouldn’t take much longer to push the new build. Galaxy S23 users have already waited a long for the June update. We will let you know when the rollout begins.
The June update for the Galaxy S23 series brings a lot of changes
An OTA update of 2.2GB is pretty big, and that means a lot of changes. The June update for the Galaxy S23 series brings a 2x zoom option for Portrait Mode in the stock camera app. The latest Samsung flagships currently let you capture portrait shots in 1x and 3x zoom only. Additionally, the Korean firm is pushing improvements to the Night mode, camera autofocus, haptic feedback, and system animations and transitions. There may be more changes but we will have to wait until Samsung resumes the rollout for confirmation.
