Samsung is apparently working on a firmware update to fix the “sudden death” of some 16GB Galaxy S IIIs.

The term “sudden death” stuck after a number of device owners reported in the XDA-Developers forums that their SIIIs, well, just suddenly died. The smartphone would apparently stop working for an unknown reason, but a Samsung spokesperson admitted to Tweakers recently that the bug only concerns a “very limited number” of S IIIs.

Samsung Galaxy S IIIs with 16GB, stock software, and custom ROMs seem to have only experienced the issue so far, but Samsung is reportedly pushing out a firmware update at some point in the unspecified near future to remedy the problem.
