PUBG New State reportedly bricking Android devices: Details here
The bricking issue does not seem to have widely affected people, as we properly played PUBG: New State after sign-in on our iQOO 5 and Vivo X70 Pro smartphones, with both of them running Android 12.
A number of people have taken to social media platforms to report PUBG: New State is bricking Android devices. The issue is reportedly affecting Android 12 users, but there are a few users that are being affected on some of the earlier Android versions. The bricking issue emerged in just a few hours of the game's release.
Apart from other users, tipster Mukul Sharma also tweeted about his Android 12 device getting bricked after installing PUBG: New State. He stated that one of his Android devices is hard bricked, but was able to revive his Oppo Find X2 Pro.
In his report via 91Mobiles, the problem occurs when users try to sign in either as a guest or using a social account while starting PUBG: New State. "Tapping on any of the three buttons turned out to be a nightmare and the device entered [the] boot loop for a couple of minutes. Post that, things became worse, as the device completely froze and is, well, a brick for now," said Sharma.
