Samsung may have halted the One UI 6.1 update for the Galaxy S22 series just hours after its release. Reports coming out of South Korea, the only region where the update was available, suggest the update was buggy, forcing the company to temporarily suspend it. Some users reportedly encountered lock screen and boot issues after installing One UI 6.1. The Korean firm has yet to acknowledge the issues or confirm anything.

One UI 6.1 for the Galaxy S22 series reportedly halted due to bugs

Yesterday, Samsung released One UI 6.1 for all of its 2022 and 2021 flagship smartphones, including foldables. The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 series received the update first, followed immediately by the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The devices picked up new AI features and other improvements. The Galaxy Tab S8 series is also expected to join the party soon.

As usual, Korean users got preferential treatment. The company may roll out the new One UI update globally over the next few days. However, Galaxy S22 users may have to wait longer for it. News circulating on the Samsung Community forum in Korea says the company has halted the One UI 6.1 release for its 2022 Galaxy S flagships. This came after the discovery of bugs causing various issues on the devices.

The phones may fail to boot properly or unlock after a restart. Most users who have already installed the update don’t have any problems, though. That said, something may be wrong and Samsung acted quickly to halt the rollout. Galaxy S22 users who didn’t install the update within the first few hours of its release are no longer seeing the update. The company may resume the update once it fixes the bugs.

Users who have already updated their devices may get another build to fix the issues in the coming days. We are still awaiting a confirmation from Samsung. It might be evaluating the situation and working on the next steps. We will let you know when we have anything new to share with you.

Avoid downloading the update for the time being

Alongside the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung yesterday updated several other devices to One UI 6.1 in Korea. However, reports suggest other models don’t have any problem. Nonetheless, we advise you to avoid downloading the update for a few days and wait for an official comment from the company. To check for updates, go to Settings > Software update > Download and install.
