With the Galaxy S9 due to its announcement in a couple of weeks, it is expected that Oreo is to release before then. However, the company has stopped its rollout of the software, citing a particular problem as the reason.
Even though Samsung had essentially completed it’s beta testing and had even started to roll the final build of Android Oreo out to some markets, the company has now ceased that rollout.
It happens after it was discovered that there is a bug that causes devices to restart unexpectedly. Moreover, the firm also confirmed it.
