Yes! Galaxy Note 7 is Dead! Samsung says it is permanently halting production of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, a day after it ended worldwide offers of the star-crossed devices.
The South Korean organization said in an administrative documenting Tuesday that it had made a final decision to stop production for the sake of consumer safety.
“TAKING OUR CUSTOMER’S SAFETY AS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY”
“For the benefit of consumers’ safety, we stopped sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 and had consequently decided to stop production,” a Samsung representative told Business Insider in an announcement.
Samsung is attempting to regain consumer trust after the first round of recalls. The company said clients around the globe on September 2 that it was beginning a worldwide recall as a precaution after several phones caught fire after charging.
The company shipped out new phones it said were not affected by the battery issue. It would have been a minor issue for Samsung if it had finished there, and the Galaxy Note 7 could have lived on.
