For Samsung Galaxy M31 users who haven’t updated their phone yet, it is highly advisable that they skip the latest update till Samsung fixes the issue. If they update, they will not be able to go to Samsung’s service centres in this lockdown period.
Samsung Galaxy A70 devices also faced similar issue after updating to the Android 10 OS version. A report by SamMobile claims that the A70 was bricking due to hardware mismatch.
Samsung has now pulled both the updates and will look into the issue that was causing these devices to crash. The company will likely be rolling out a new update in the coming weeks.
