latest update for Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Samsung “briquets” certain devices – this is what we call when a device suddenly stops working and no longer turns on. This is what some users have reported on the official Samsung forums and on Reddit.
The latest update for Samsung smartwatches brings the firmware ending in VI3, and some bugs in the system seem to no longer allow the devices to be turned on if they are powered off or restarted. The problem was already recognized by the manufacturer, which suspended the distribution of the update.
“We are aware that a limited number of Galaxy Watch 4 series models are no longer unlocked after a recent software update (VI3).” – declared the company. “We stopped the update and will release new software soon.”
Currently “paused” update
What surprises many people is that the problem occurred randomly rather than right after the update. Most users have locked their Galaxy Watch 4 only after turning off the device or trying to restart it.
Since Samsung has decided to stop distributing the problematic firmware, we should not see any more problematic devices. However, for those who are not informed in time and have the clock “bricked”, the manufacturer’s technical assistance should be able to fix the problem.
