Samsung temporarily halts production of Note 7 after replacement devices catch fire


Reports have come in showing that replacement Note 7 device have also caught fire. Samsung have were pretty quick to announce that they are temporarily halting production of the Note 7 as they investigate the issues surrounding the devices catching fire.

Based on the reports, it does look like a few devices that were sent out as replacement units have indeed caught fire exactly the same way as the original units, where Samsung issued a global replacement program. No more statements have been released, but a second Note 7 recall could very well be announced very soon. Unless Samsung’s investigation reveals something other than the obvious, it looks very much like the new Note 7 devices suffer the same fatal flaw.
