Samsung has a temporary touchscreen fix for the Galaxy S23


The One UI 6.1 update that Samsung recently rolled out was supposed to be a good thing. It introduced Galaxy AI to some of the company’s older phones. Unfortunately, it brought along a host of problems including charging issues, fingerprint scanner issues, and touchscreen issues. Luckily, Samsung has a fix for the latter problem for Galaxy S23 phones that were updated to One UI 6.1.

In a post published on its Korean community website, Samsung revealed that apparently the cause behind the touchscreen issue is Google’s Discover feature. It turns out that there is an issue with the Google app. The company says that Google is aware of the problem and is working on a fix, and for now, Samsung has offered a temporary solution.

This involves making sure that your Google app is updated to the latest version. Once it has been updated, users will have to clear the Google app’s data and restart their device. It seems that once users go through these steps, the touchscreen on their Galaxy S23 phones should be working properly again.

It is a temporary fix because there is a chance once you start using the app again, the problem could reoccur. If that’s the case, you’ll have to repeat these steps until Google comes out with a permanent fix. We’re not sure when that will happen, but hopefully it won’t be too long.
