Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones that have been launched in February appear to be to have landed in trouble. A number of buyers on social media have recently pointed out that their Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones are dealing with GPS-similar challenges in particular whilst working with Google Maps. Samsung has not formally tackled the problem nevertheless, some have claimed that the retail showrooms are changing the models right after they reported the challenge. The problem also seems to be current in the Galaxy S20 models which applied the Snapdragon-powered SoC instead of Samsung’s very own Exynos SoC. Formerly some buyers also pointed out an challenge with the digital camera of the new smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy S20-collection buyers living in The us and Canada have pointed out on social media that whilst working with applications these types of as Google Maps and Waze, the GPS in the cellular phone was not able to freeze the detected locale. A user on Twitter pointed out that inspite of restarting the cellular phone, the apparent bug did not get fastened. Similarly, other buyers on Samsung Discussion boards elevated the identical challenges whilst working with Google Maps. A user further claimed that inspite of turning off and then turning on the GPS, the problem still lingered. “When working with Google Maps or Waze I am acquiring a browsing for GPS information on the display. I have experimented with turning locale off and back on and rebooting the cellular phone. Not confident what else I can do to resolve this challenge,” the user claimed.

Just after a lot more buyers tackled the alleged problem on the discussion board, some further claimed that their Samsung Galaxy S20 models have been replaced. At the minute it is unclear regardless of whether this is a software bug that is leading to the problem or a hardware challenge with the handset.

Given that most of the buyers who reported the challenge are living nations like the US and Canada, we are assuming the alleged bug is current in the Snapdragon-powered models. To recall, Samsung released the Galaxy S20 lineup, which consists of the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra with both Samsung Exynos 990 SoC or Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The Samsung Galaxy S20 telephones that are bought in India use an Exynos-powered processor, compared with the US models which use the Snapdragon processors. This is potentially why we have not come across buyers complaining about GPS-similar challenges in the state.

Earlier this week, Samsung also experimented with correcting an vehicle-target digital camera challenge that was pointed out by a number of buyers. Nonetheless, it is not absolutely fixed nevertheless and an update from Samsung is expected in the coming weeks.
