Samsung admits to the problem of its smartphone S22 Ultra receiving GPS signals. One of the moderators on Samsung’s own forum said they are working on an update to fix this issue. It is still unknown when a fix will be available.
mediator says That Samsung is aware of the problem and is working on a software update that should fix it. Samsung Benelux said the same to a Dutch phone user who contacted the company. This statement states that the fix will come in “another maintenance release,” presumably an upcoming security update.
Users have reported that in apps like Google Maps and Waze, the GPS signal drops every now and then and the phone says it’s “looking for GPS.” Sometimes a restart will fix the problem temporarily, until it comes back. This mainly concerns the release of the phone with Exynos soc from Samsung sold in Belgium and the Netherlands.
It is not known how many users have the problem. The GPS issue does not appear to occur with other S22 models. Samsung released the S22 Ultra last month. It’s a new phone that came pre-installed in the Galaxy Note series, with a pin that users can store in the housing.
