Galaxy note 7 to be recalled over battery flaw
After just two weeks on sale and 35 faulty phone batteries so far, Samsung issues a global recall and promises to replace every unit already sold.
The Korean electronics conglomerate on Friday issued a global recall for its new Galaxy Note 7 phone due to problems with the device’s battery. The company’s flagship device has been on sale worldwide for just two weeks.
After announcing that it had “paused” sales of the device in Australia late on Friday local time, Samsung issued a statement confirming that it would stop further sales of the Note 7 after discovering a “battery cell issue.”
