Samsung has said only a small number of its flagship Galaxy S5 handsets, released earlier in April, are affected by a camera hardware bug that has come to light.
Users reported problems when using the camera feature on their Galaxy S5s over the weekend, and providers such as Verizon subsequently offered repairs.
Samsung has already reacted once. "Samsung is committed to providing the best experience for customers. We have learned that a limited number of Galaxy S5 devices may have an issue that causes 'Camera Failure' pop-up error message," it said on Friday.
Since then Samsung has updated its information, telling Reuters that a "very limited" section of the earliest Galaxy S5 adopters may be affected by the flaw.
"We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion of early production Galaxy S5 units, and was caused by complications in the ROM component, which stores the information necessary to operate the camera," it said.
Reuters added that Samsung confirmed issues in the US and "a few other countries", but the firm would not be drawn on the number of affected units.
Analytics firm Localytics found that in just seven days, between 11 and 18 April, the Galaxy S5 had gained 0.7 percent of the Android market, which means it accounted for almost one in every 100 Android devices used globally at the time.
V3 has asked local Samsung representatives whether any problems with S5 units had been reported in Europe. It has not yet responded.
