Now, it’s official folks.
Samsung has announced a recall of their latest Note 7 just weeks after the launching because of exploding issue. There have been some reports of note exploding while charging.
DJ Koh, the head of Samsung’s mobile business, revealed the results of the investigation of the several Note 7 fire incidents that have been reported since the device went sale in August 19.
After this announcement, all sale have been halted. Samsung also announced that the exploded Notes will replace by the new ones. The process of replacement could take up to two weeks. The problem is related to the battery, as suspected. All the sold out units has been recalled although just 24 units in every million are at exploding risk.
As the sales were building a momentum, this could be a huge setback for Samsung. As the Apple is going to launch new iPhone on September 7. This could affect the overall sale of the Samsung smartphone due to fear of exploding.
That means we have to wait for more to gets hand on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7. There will be a delay on launch date in Nepal as Samsung have to first be sure others will not explode.
And for folks from Nepal, who bought Note 7 from the grey market should be careful. It would be a great idea to stay far from the phone while charging if you don’t want to hurt yourself.
