Samsung to rollout Galaxy S8/S8+ Bluetooth connectivity and stability fix to more countries soon
Following the problem with the red tint that marred the screen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ (which the manufacturer later cleared up with a software update), another problem has surfaced. The.latest issue to affect the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a problem that prevents owners of Sammy's latest flagship models from enjoying a stable and smooth Bluetooth connection with speakers, headsets and other accessories that are driven by Bluetooth. Some members of Samsung's official communities are complaining about this problem, with at least one writing about the failure of his Galaxy S8+ to maintain a Bluetooth connection with his Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch. The whole experience has been so frustrating that he has switched back to his Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

But things aren't so dark and gloomy for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners. Samsung started rolling out an update a few days ago to the affected flagship models that will fix these Bluetooth connectivity and stability problems. The only thing is that the update has thus far been limited to the United Arab Emirates.


We should see Samsung start pushing out this update to other markets shortly, so if you don't live in the UAE and are having this problem with your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, sit tight. Help is on the way.
