Samsung stops production of Galaxy Note 7 after handsets catch fire!
Samsung has stopped sales and production of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone after reports of the devices catching fire.
Back in September, Samsung recalled 2.5 million handsets after reports of exploding batteries. They later reassured owners that all replaced devices were safe, however there are now reports that the replacement phones are also catching fire.
Samsung has spoken and said: “We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7. Because consumers’ safety remains our top priority, Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place.”
“We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available.”
On Tuesday 11th October the company has said it would stop the production of the Galaxy Note 7.
