Android 12 causing serious issues for some Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 owners


Last updated: December 8th, 2021 at 09:55 UTC+02:00

A couple of days ago, Samsung released the stable Android 12 update to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in a few countries. However, it looks like the update isn’t stable after all. Many Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 users have complained of varied issues ever since they installed the One UI 4.0 update.

South Korean users are facing a lot of issues with their latest foldable phones running Android 12. In Samsung’s official forums, some users claimed that their device has bricked after installing the update. Others said their device entered the recovery mode after installing the new firmware. Some users faced screen flickering, dark mode, slow performance, and the Dual Messenger feature not working with some apps.

Some Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 users are unable to take screenshots or use video streaming apps like Netflix and YouTube. Others have even faced issues related to the camera and images getting automatically deleted from the gallery. Some units are stuck on a 60Hz screen refresh rate or have bad audio quality. One user even claimed that the phone’s camera app isn’t working after installing the One UI 4.0 update.

It is being reported that Samsung has decided to temporarily stop the Android 12 rollout for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. After critical bugs are fixed, the South Korean firm could resume the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update in South Korea and release it in more countries.
