S8 Scarlett Pimpernel update


Hi, has anyone else heard anything about the S8, S8+ apparently being lined up for the new firmware update and the one update as well. Quite looking forward to it if we do, as the moment my S8+ is acting weird. First off it was just freezing on any app for about 5 minutes then just restart itself but now if I restart my phone - example: after a cache cleanout, it's recently started freezing on the circle as it starts up so I have to leave it and normally it'll start as normal again or I have to do the soft reset with the buttons. Never experienced anything like it before, not like I've got dodgy apps on it. I haven't even rooted it. Well fingers crossed if we do get this phantom update I'm really hoping it sorts out my phone that's been possessed

Usually some info is within the Samsung Members App  / Samsung+ App  @ttwa666 


Smartswitch can be helpful when checking if an update is ready.


Appreciate you've tried some troubleshooting tips.


Have you considered backing up and a factory reset  ?


A Samsung Experience Store  / Samsung Service Centre can check out the phone for you too.
