Samsung jumped from its Note 5 to the Note 7, boycotting the Note 6 in the series.
It touted the Note 7 as the best smartphone/phablet you’d and it was easy to see why.
With crystal clear AMOLED display, am iris scanner and packing a 4GB rAM, the Note 7 is a true performer- but there’s a bit of a snag.
Samsung has ordered a global recall for the Note 7 following 35 reported cases of the phone exploding during or after charging.
The president of Samsung’s mobile business Koh Dong-jin told reporters; “We have received several reports of battery explosion on the Note 7 that was officially launched on August 19… and it has been confirmed that it was a battery cell problem,”
Anyone who bought the Note 7 will now be able to swap it for a new one. It will come as a blow to Samsung, seeing as their rivals, Apple is rolling out its iPhone 7 this week.
