In an official note to the TechRadar website, Samsung today denied having removed any features from the Galaxy S III and alerted consumers to an update failure.
Yesterday, a post from Android Central stated that the South Korean manufacturer allegedly removed the universal search functionality to avoid new conflicts and lawsuits from Apple.
?The most recent software update for the Galaxy S III in the UK included an inadvertent removal of the universal search function. Samsung will provide the correct update software within the next few days, ?said a spokesman.
A report by Juniper Research said today that Samsung sold more than 52 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2012, while Apple sold just 26 million iPhones during the quarter.
