A UI 6.1 update for the Galaxy S22 series has been stopped due to a bug

Samsung yesterday began rolling out the update to One UI 6.1, which contains the Galaxy AI features that debuted in January, to the Galaxy S22 family in Korea. And here we haven’t even spent 24 hours and it seems that the launch has already stopped. Note that while yesterday’s launch included many more devices, it appears to have only stopped specifically for the Galaxy S22 series.

The reason, as always in these cases, has to do with an error: quality control in software updates is difficult, without a doubt, but it shouldn’t be so difficult to detect something so obvious. We are talking about the lock screen and touch screen no longer working after the update.

The bug has not been found on the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4, at least not yet, so the rollout continues for those devices. The bug was also spotted on the Galaxy S21 series, but it appears to be more isolated to those devices, so its rollout hasn’t stopped yet.

While we’ve always praised Samsung for how willing it is to roll out updates to dozens and dozens of devices in a short period of time recently, things like this just shouldn’t make it to supposedly stable releases. Let’s hope their quality control of updates improves in the future.

The good news, if there can be any in such a scenario, is that the One UI 6.1 rollout for the Galaxy S22 had only begun in Korea before the bug was found, so we assume this means other markets won’t be able to experience it. . absolutely. We will notify you when the launch resumes.
