We heavily doubt that you have missed this story, but in case you did, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been exploding once again.
Due to this, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission officially recalled the Galaxy Note 7 on Thursday, requesting that every single unit be returned.
In total, that is around 1.9 million Note 7 units, 1 million of which are the original Galaxy Note 7 units and the other 900,000 units are the Galaxy Note 7 units that were sent out as replacements after the first recall.
Samsung has stated that they have received 96 reports of overheating phones in the US, 23 of which occurring after September 15th, the date of the initial recall.
The CSPC is investigating 6 of those reports of replacement phones overheating.
As of the time of writing, there have been 13 reports of burns and 47 reports of property damage due to a Galaxy Note 7 self-combusting.
In response to this, Samsung officially ended production of the Note 7, advising users to power down and stop using the device. They also launched the Galaxy Note 7 Refund and Exchange programme in the US.
As of right now, that’s about all that we have to catch you up on, as soon as we hear more we will update you.
