Galaxy A3 (2017) June update fixes Wi-Fi reboot issues on Oreo

Firmware

Last updated: June 6th, 2018 at 10:45 UTC+02:00

It hasn't been smooth sailing for every Samsung device that has been updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. Random reboots and getting stuck with a phone that doesn't boot after the update has been installed are the two major issues people have had. For Galaxy A3 (2017) owners, connecting to Wi-Fi provided by services such as eduroam and other public networks was one of the prime suspects for the random reboots, but it looks like Samsung has resolved that issue with the June 2018 security patch update that rolled out to the Galaxy A3 (2017) earlier this week.

Connecting to Wi-Fi should no longer make the phone restart

A few readers of GalaxyClub have confirmed that their phone no longer has issues connecting to Wi-Fi networks that were causing reboots earlier. Samsung hasn't mentioned anything in the changelog for the June update, but it seems the reboot fix might have been the reason why the company was so quick to release the latest security patch for the Galaxy A3 (2017). In fact, Samsung released the update before even Google announced information of the June 2018 patch, though details have now been published by both Samsung and Google.

Samsung is yet to release the latest Galaxy A3 (2017) update in countries other than the ones where it rolled out initially, so it's possible the device's Oreo problems aren't affecting everyone. Still, if your A3 (2017) isn't running properly after upgrading to Oreo, you can hope Samsung will soon push out a similar update in your country. You can also check if it's already available by going to the Settings » Software update menu on the phone and tapping Download updates manually.

Have you received the June security patch update on your Galaxy A3 (2017)? Has it fixed any issues you had other than (and including) random reboots over public Wi-Fi networks? Let us know in the comments!
