standard Samsung halts shipments of the Galaxy Note 7, considering full recall

In some troubling news, Mobile tech giant Samsung have temporarily halted sending out new shipments of their latest flagship device, the Note 7. Samsung has also informed carriers in the UK to delay delivering shipments of the devices as the company investigates reports of “exploding battery packs” in the Note 7, an issue Samsung claims only affects .1% of sold devices.

We are conducting a thorough inspection. We will share the findings as soon as possible. Samsung is fully committed to providing the highest quality products to our consumers.

Other reports claim that Samsung are already arranging for a full recall on all devices, going as far as discussing the details of a recall with Verizon Wireless. Considering the marketing push Samsung are putting behind the Note 7, a full recall would deal a serious blow to the company, between the negative publicity and the delay in delivering devices to customers. Samsung are yet to issue an official statement regarding the recalls.
