Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge paused amid glitches

Share

Samsung India is gearing up to launch new Galaxy smartphones in the country at an event on May 21. "It's coming to take you #ToInfinityAndMore". Samsung Mobile India has tweeted out a video of the upcoming launch. It will look to capture the market share once again with the feature-rich Galaxy J6 which has the iconic design language of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S9 series.

Dubbed "To infinity and more", the phone is might come with a near bezel-less display. Based on the photo shared, the Galaxy J6 will not have any side bezels, though it will continue to have the top and bottom bezel.

First up, the Galaxy J6 may have just had its retail box leaked in India, further corroborating the inclusion of an "Infinity Display" (presumably capped off at HD+ resolution), and hinting at a reasonable recommended price of Rs. 14,990. It comes in two memory configurations - 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Despite running the modern Android 8.0 Oreo OS, this thing packs a pretty bad 2GB RAM and an outdated Exynos 7870 processor, which probably means the so-called J7 Aero won't be similar to the India-exclusive J7 Duo after all.

Exploring further, the researchers found the concentration of CFC-11 to be unusually high in the Northern Hemisphere. The information has led the researchers to hypothesise that the emissions are coming from the Northern Hemisphere.

Samsung's European help forum responded by saying, "Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update".

With that being said, the Galaxy J6 also seems to have a flash on the front, and we hope that it will have a fingerprint scanner on its back, otherwise you will have to make do with Face Unlock if you are lazy enough to unlock the smartphone by using PIN/Pattern/Password.

While some key specs of the Galaxy J6 are yet to be confirmed, we do know nearly everything about the Galaxy A6+ as it was made official globally earlier this month.
