After a few days with no word from Samsung about a newly discovered camera bug that has been affecting a decent amount of Galaxy S5 users on Verizon Samsung has finally come out with some details about the bug. According to Samsung the camera bug that is causing some people’s camera to not work is caused by an issue with the information necessary to operate camera located in the ROM (Read Only Memory). Here is an exact quote from Samsung given to Reuters, “We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion of early production Galaxy S5 units, and was caused by complications in the ROM (Read Only Memory) component which stores the information necessary to operate the camera.”
Samsung still has given us no word on just how many users this fatal bug has affected but they did say it was only a small number of users and that the bug only seemed to occur on CDMA variants of the S5, which means Verizon and Sprint models. If you are unlucky enough to have picked up a Galaxy S5 with this bug then Samsung urges you to either get in touch with your carrier for a replacement or with them directly.
Has your Galaxy S5 been affected by this bug? Is so did your carrier or Samsung offer you a free replacement? Let us know in the comments section.
