What you need to know

  • Some Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 devices are reportedly having various issues after the stable One UI 4 update.
  • The Android 12 update appears to be bricking some devices while booting others into recovery mode.
  • Samsung is supposedly planning to halt the rollout until these issues are resolved.

Samsung is reportedly considering holding back the stable One UI 4 (Android 12) rollout for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 due to mounting customer complaints just a few days after the update was released.

Some South Korean users have taken to Samsung's community forum to report various issues that have occurred on their devices since installing One UI 4. According to one of the complaints, the update bricked Samsung's foldable devices.

In some cases, the phone entered recovery mode after the update, and rebooting did not appear to resolve the issue. In other instances, the update appeared to have caused additional problems such as screen flickering, dark mode, and sluggish performance.

Other users also reported that the Dual Messenger feature was not working with some apps. Some complained that taking screenshots didn't work and images disappeared from the gallery.

The problem also extends to various video apps such as Netflix and YouTube, which reportedly stopped working on some of Samsung's best Android phones. Some Galaxy Z Fold 3 displays have also apparently stuck on a 60Hz refresh rate.

The issues are not just limited to South Korea as users in other regions are apparently facing similar problems as well, according to SamMobile. Samsung could not immediately respond to Android Central's request for comment.

However, as per SamMobile, the South Korean tech giant is supposedly planning to pause the update's rollout until a fix is released.

Update, Dec 27 (9:01 a.m. ET) ― Samsung is working with Google to fix some issues with One UI 4

The One UI 4 rollout will restart soon for Samsung's recent flagship devices including the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3.

A Samsung community moderator has confirmed that the company is working on a fix for some compatibility issues with the Google Play system (via SamMobile). These problems previously forced Samsung to suspend the One UI 4 update.

The South Korean tech giant is currently revising the update to incorporate a patch from Google meant to address these compatibility issues.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

iPhone 15 Pro Rumored to Feature Ultra-Thin Curved Bezels

The iPhone 15 Pro models will have thinner, curved bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models, potentially resulting in an Apple Watch-like appearance, according to the leaker known as " ShrimpApplePro ." ShrimpApplePro clarified that the next-generation "Pro" iPhone models will still have flat displays, since only the bezels are to be curved. According to a source speaking to the leaker, this combination of slimmer bezels and curved edges could result in a look similar to the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8. The curved front glass will purportedly also be present on the ‌iPhone 15‌ and ‌iPhone 15‌ Plus's design, but these devices will not have thinner bezels compared to their iPhone 14 predecessors. ShrimpApplePro added that the ‌iPhone 15‌ lineup will feature the same display sizes as last year's ‌iPhone 14‌ lineup. Last year, the leaker was among the first to say that the ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro models will have a titanium frame with curved rear ed
