Samsung firmware update will fix sudden death issue with the Galaxy S III

Samsung firmware update will fix sudden death issue with the Galaxy S III
Samsung now says that it was a firmware bug that was killing off a small number of units of the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III. As we told you back last month, some owners of the device were finding the phone bricked 150 to 200 days after activation. Samsung was replacing affected units under the warranty, even going as far as replacing rooted units that had died.

There is no word on when Samsung will push out the update, but we're a strong believer in the theory that sudden death should be reserved for the NFL and NHL. Samsung spokeswoman Anne ter Braaky says that if you have a unit that is not working, take it to a Samsung repair center. While the motherboard is covered under the warranty, the firmware still needs to be updated.

If you are one of the unlucky ones whose Samsung Galaxy S III has crossed over, Samsung says not to worry, the company will take care of you.
