After multiple incidents, Samsung is reportedly halting the production of Galaxy Note 7 temporarily



Samsung has temporarily halted the production of the Galaxy Note 7 due to multiple reports of the replacement unit catching fire. This is definitely a poor show put up by the company, but at least now they have realised it and have decided to do something about it. This was bound to happen sooner or later since the smartphone was potentially a threat to the users using it as well as the people around them. We have seen multiple incidents of what this smartphone can do once it catches fire.

Well, if you were living under a rock and have no idea on what’s going on, then the only thing you should be knowing is the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone is no longer in production, at least temporarily. This is the result of multiple explosion which was reported since the first one about a month ago. Since then the company decided to recall the defective units and replaced them with the safe ones. But it looks like the safe ones aren’t really safe after all.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Timeline from Launch to Explosions to the $1 Billion Recall

After the recall, three replaced smartphones have caught fire until now and we have no idea, how many will follow. Major US carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile have stopped the sales of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. They refused giving replacement units of the same as well since it is not safe anymore to use this smartphone anymore. They are encouraging their customers to return the device and replace it with some other device. And now after all the mayhem, it looks like the company has finally decided to pull the plug and call it a day.

As of now, it is not confirmed by the source that when will the company resume the production but it looks like it will take quite some time since this a safety issue now. However, we don’t have an official word from the company yet, but we believe it is the right move. So let’s just wait and see what the company has to say on this and see how the future unfolds for them. With that being said, if you are still using one of the note 7 smartphones, it is advised that you power down the device immediately and stop using it.

If you don’t have an alternate smartphone to use, then getting ti replaced with some other device or getting a full refund will be wise option as well. So if you are under the AT&T or T-Mobile, you can walk into one of the stores and get it replaced with some other smartphone or get a full refund it right away. And as far as India is concerned, it was reported that the company will start selling them starting 28th October, but now after all this reports, we believe that the possibility of the sales starting on 28th October is very less. However, we don’t have any official word form them, so we suggest you to wait until we get an official statement from them. Stay tuned for more details on this.
