Samsung is rolling out a new update to its Galaxy A3 (2016), which is said to fix a major problem. Users of this smartphone have been facing an annoying battery charging problem for quite a while now.
The phone's battery was not getting charged up past 87 percent. It started after the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) was updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Furthermore, the battery was getting drained faster than usual. Affected users tried out many ways to fix the issues, but it could only be solved if they rolled back to Android Marshmallow. According to Samsung, the new update will fix this problem.
It is not clear what exactly caused the problem, but presumably it was due to a bad line of code. Whatever the case is, the important thing is the update will finally enable the device to get charged up to 100 percent again. Needless to say, this is a good news for the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) users.
Unfortunately though, currently, the update is being rolled out only to the users in Europe. Hopefully, it wouldn't be long before the update makes its way to other regions as well.
The latest update carries build number of A310FXXU3CQI8. Being a maintenance update, it will not bring any other improvements or new features. Since it is rolled out via OTA, users will have to wait for the notification to start the installation. Also, Samsung is sending out the update in phases, so not all the Galaxy A3 (2016) devices will get it at the same time.
However, those who don't want to wait can check for the update manually by going to their device's Settings > Software Update > Download.
