Samsung Electronics is recalling its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone due to battery problems which caused the devices to catch fire.

The decision follows reports in the US and South Korea of the phone “exploding” after being charged.

Over 2.5million of these phones had been sold and Samsung said it had been difficult to work out which phones were affected.

The firm said it would take about two weeks to prepare replacement devices.

According to Samsung, the phone has been launched in 10 countries so far but with different companies supplying the batteries.

The recall comes just one week ahead of an expected presentation of a new iPhone model from its main rival Apple.

  1. my mum has a samsung but she does not have any problems. Though I do think that apple is way better with the function but with storage I think samsung beats them all.

  2. That’s bad what if a child was touching it after it charged it could get hurt and whoever put great and funny news… GUESS WHAT IT’S NOT!
