Samsung Acknowledges Galaxy S3 ‘Sudden Death’ bug and Promises a Fix



The Samsung Galaxy S3 was recently diagnosed with a very uncommon bug that has plagued a limited amount of devices, called ‘Sudden Death’. For instance, a device with this bug at a point of time would restart randomly, then shut down and would not turn on again. That’s a serious problem, especially when a flagship is the main object.

Fortunately for us, Samsung is noticed about this critical misbehavior, said to be working on a firmware update which should fix the problem. The Korean manufacturer also provides free repair or exchange for ‘dead’ devices. It’s worth mentioning that only a small batch of 16GB Samsung Galaxy S3 units is affected, so users of the 32GB and 64GB variants have nothing to worry about.
