Samsung’s April 2024 update bricking Galaxy Z Fold 3

Samsung Galaxy june 2024 update

Samsung’s April 2024 update is reportedly bricking Galaxy Z Fold 3. A user reported on the Korean version of Samsung’s community that this smartphone was stuck in recovery mode after triggering the installation of the F926NKSU2HXD2 firmware.

The problem seems limited as I haven’t found many reports regarding the same. At the same time, the comments section of the source post also lacks similar feedback from consumers. Still, I recommend you not to install the HXD2 firmware on your Galaxy.

Samsung has recently launched Samsung Wallet in its home ground. We’ve seen a heavy number of Samsung Pay users switching to Wallet for advanced payments and mobile ID features. Notably, the firmware update also brought Samsung Wallet Mobile ID integration for the Fold 3.

Apart from the Wallet upgrade, the firmware brings the April 2024 security patch. Samsung may have also released HXD2 to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in South Korea. The same firmware was started rolling out to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, however, there are no reports from consumers in the community.

While the smartphone is stuck in recovery mode, the only way left is to wipe the data. Wiping data will lead the user to lose access to all the personal data that was not backed up. Also, there will be a lot of hurdles after manually resetting the device such as logging in via the trusted device.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Super HDR

Samsung has confirmed its collaboration with Instagram to bring a new Super HDR feature to the Galaxy S24 series. Through this, the company aims to introduce the Super HDR on/off toggle, providing a new way to view Instagram feeds.

By default, the Super HDR feature is enabled for users’ Instagram feeds, ensuring that content appears vibrant and with the fullest screen brightness. Considering different user preferences, Samsung plans to include a toggle that allows users to easily turn the Super HDR feature on or off.

According to community moderators, Samsung and Instagram are actively reviewing users’ feedback to enhance the Super HDR feature. The company is also working to introduce the Super HDR toggle to Instagram feeds and make it a default for Galaxy S24.

This option ensures users who prefer an SDR viewing experience can still enjoy Instagram content without HDR enhancements.

As development progresses, Samsung plans to keep users informed through its Samsung Members app. Through this, users can easily check the latest updates on the availability and functionality of the Super HDR feature for the Galaxy S24 series.
