One UI 4 update to resume after Samsung and Google fix compatibility issues

Samsung is currently preparing a revised One UI 4 version that includes a patch from Google.

Update, Dec 27 (9:01 a.m. ET): Samsung vows to restart the One UI 4 rollout soon.

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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
