Samsung should release an update to fix wallpaper bug

-

The bug that causes problems on Android smartphones has its days numbered, at least on Samsung models. The South Korean giant is already working on an update that corrects this flaw (fix wallpaper bug).

Recently, the renowned Ice Universe leaker discovered a wallpaper capable of rendering Android smartphones unusable. In his Twitter account, he said that this seemingly harmless image mainly affected Samsung models.

The flaw starts as follows: when the image is set as wallpaper, the smartphone starts to flash the screen and randomly restarts, entering a loop and, consequently, becoming unusable.

For some unknown reason, the wallpaper does not affect Huawei and OnePlus devices. So far, there is no precise information on what causes this problem, but Ice Universe believes that the bug is related to the color range supported by Android:

When I uploaded the original image (left) to Weibo, I found that its color was changed (right). At that point, the image became harmless, but when uploaded to twitter, the original image does not change color and is still harmful. So I suspect it may be related to the color gamut. In other words, Weibo processed the photos and removed the harmful metadata. But Twitter’s mechanism for processing photos is different from Weibo.

Now, seeking to remedy this problem, the SamMobile folks confirmed that Samsung is working on a new update that corrects the flaw.

Although this bug directly affects Android, it seems that the South Korean giant will not expect a response from Google, such as a security patch, for example, something totally understandable considering that we are talking about a problem that seriously damages the system.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know when the update will be available, but it could happen soon. Until then, we recommend you to be very careful when adding wallpapers on your Android smartphone. Always check that it was purchased from trusted sources.
