Samsung Reportedly Stops Distribution Of Galaxy Note7 Units In KoreaBy cheatmaster 08:04 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments
On August 19, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 launched in its home country of South Korea and has srecent 400,000 units since then. But now Samsung has stopped deliveries to the country's three major carriers - SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus.
Yohhap News put forward the theory that this is related to several incidents of a Note7 exploding during charging - 5 people have made this claim over the last week. Defective 3rd party chargers may have been involved - we just don't know until Samsung comes out with an official statement.
Reuters reports on the halted shipments, but quotes a Samsung official who mentions "additional tests being conducted for product quality," without mentioning any explosions or indeed a specific flaw the company is retesting for.
An official from a local carrier only confirmed that Samsung halted deliveries due to a "snag" without further details.
