Camera failure is leaving snap-happy Samsung Galaxy S5 fans out of the picture. The Korean tech company says a software bug is causing camera failure in a "limited number" of handsets.
Reports of the problem have emerged just one month after Samsung launched the flagship Android smartphone. Samsung claims the camera failure only affects early production models. Affected Galaxy S5s display an error message that simply reads "Warning: Camera failed," with no other explanation.
Failing handsets have been reported in the United States and other unspecified countries according to Samsung, but not yet Australia. The company hasn't announced a fix, but owners of affected phones should contact customer service.
Meanwhile, Apple is rolling out a free global repair program for a power button issue on early iPhone 5 models. The service launches in Australia on 2 May.
