|Samsung to Recall Galaxy Note 7 Units in Fear of Battery Explosions|
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is considered as one of the best devices your money can buy this year, it seems there are some issues that are plaguing the aforementioned phablet. The most glaring issue of the Galaxy Note 7 is that reports have recently surfaced, claiming that some of the units have their batteries exploding.
Chosun Ilbo, a South Korean media outlet, reported that Samsung has been planning to exchange the internal batteries of the Galaxy Note 7 of the users without any fees. Furthermore, it also seems that Samsung could instead issue a refund or have the users exchange the Galaxy Note 7 with a new device. There’s still no word as to what value can be offered in the exchange.

According to the report, Samsung notes that its manufacturing partners that produce the Galaxy Note 7’s battery packs are responsible for the mishap. In this case, Korean ITM Semiconductor could be the one responsible for the issues arising from the batteries.
Whatever the case, Samsung needs to improve its quality control, especially on a device that comes with such a high price tag. Apple is about to launch its new generation of iPhones, and Samsung can’t afford to take losses such as this.
