Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra reportedly suffers from serious GPS connectivity issues, but a permanent fix is coming soon. The Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra were unveiled at Samsung’s big ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ event last month, and they’ve since been released across the world. While the Exynos models were launched in Europe and across much of Asia, the Snapdragon-powered variants made their way to the U.S. and the South Korean markets.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra has been widely hailed as one of the best Android smartphones money can buy, but it is not without its fair share of bugs and glitches. Multiple reports earlier this year suggested that the device suffers from a weird display bug that was making it difficult to use under certain circumstances. The latest report now suggests that there might also be a problem with the phone’s GPS connectivity.

On Samsung’s support forums, Galaxy S22 Ultra users claim that their phones are having trouble connecting to GPS. While some are reporting occasional and intermittent problems, others claim that the issue is persistent and happens every time they try to use the GPS. Even when the feature is working, it is apparently less accurate than on other devices. The problem is largely affecting the Exynos-powered model, although it is unclear if the Snapdragon variant is immune from the issue.

A Fix Will Roll Out ‘Soon’

After weeks of user unrest and dozens of complaints across several platforms, Samsung has finally acknowledged the issue and is reportedly working on a solution to end it once and for all. A moderator on Samsung’s EU forums has confirmed that the company will roll out a software update to fix the issue for good. There’s no timeline for the update rollout, but the company is apparently looking to do it “soon.”

With no definitive timeline for the fix to roll out, users are trying various workarounds to get their GPS to work on their S22 Ultras. One of the workarounds apparently is to restart the phone whenever it is struggling to connect to GPS. Many of the users have been reporting that restarting the phone seems to be getting the GPS function back to working order. However, this workaround only seems to offer a temporary solution, as many users are claiming that the problem still crops up every now and then. As this is only a temporary fix, Samsung will hopefully roll out a more permanent fix sooner rather than later.
