Samsung Galaxy S5 handset hit by camera problems

South Korean device maker Samsung has acknowledged in an email to the Journal that there is apparently some glitch in the camera of its latest flagship handset - Galaxy S5, which was launched nearly two weeks back.

According to Samsung, some serious camera problem is being faced by the users of the Galaxy S5 handset. The company said that the glitch in the handset's camera renders the shooter useless. However, the company has not disclosed the number of Galaxy S5 users affected by the handset's camera problem.

Nonetheless, it has been reported that the affected Galaxy S5 handsets are seemingly spread across different carriers in the US. The camera issue in the handset begins with an alert which pops up on the screens of the handset. The alert reads: "Warning: Camera Failed."

There is probably no way, as of now, in which the Galaxy S5 users can fix the camera issue affecting their handsets. Even a restart of the handset or a return back to the factory settings is of no help to the affected users.

Meanwhile, admitting that Samsung has learnt about the Galaxy S5 camera issues affecting "a "limited number" of handsets, the company said in its email to the Journal: "We ask that customers affected call 1-888-987-4357 or visit their carrier for service under Samsung's standard limited warranty."
