Samsung Stops Galaxy Note 7 Sales, Owners Should ’Power Down’

 Tuesday, October 11, 2016


That’s it for the Galaxy Note 7 -- Samsung just issued a statement saying it’s asking "all global partners to stop sales and exchanges of Galaxy Note 7 while further investigation takes place." That includes both original and devices issued as replacements, matching a rumor from last night that Samsung had, in conjunction with consumer safety organizations from several countries, decided to stop manufacturing the phone. As mentioned in the statement below, in the US, Samsung is working with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission to investigate the problem, while customers should "power down and take advantage of the remedies available, including a refund at their place of purchase."
