“For the wolf to survive, it has to chew off its own leg” – RIP, Galaxy Note 7.
That’s it, guys. Samsung has announced that they are no longer going to produce the Galaxy Note 7. They had to make this decision for the safety of the people. The Galaxy Note 7 is an amazing phone, but it had an engineering fault. These phones overheat while charging and start emitting smoke or in some cases, explode.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Officially Discontinued
To South Korean Regulators, Samsung said:
“Taking our customer’s safety as our highest priority, we have decided to halt sales and production of the Galaxy Note 7.”
The life of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ends here. Yesterday, Samsung said:
“We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation.”
Samsung is looking forward to the future now. The company is probably going to focus on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and not look back on the Note 7.
Some time after the global launch of the Note 7, reports from people all over the globe started coming. The Note 7’s battery had a defect. The phone exploded/caught fire while charging. After the initial havoc, Samsung announced a global recall of the faulty Note 7 devices and replaced them with new and safe ones.
However, these new Note 7s were not safe either. Few reports from China said that the replaced Note 7 caught fire too. But, things got out of control when the replaced Note 7 started emitting smoke on an airplane flying from Louisville to Baltimore.
So yeah, guys. In the end, Samsung made the big decision. They discontinued their best phone yet (specs-wise). For more, stay tuned to GeeksULTD.
