Samsung stop making Galaxy Note 7

Samsung has announced that it is no longer making the new Galaxy Note7 smartphone.

They have also advised customers to turn it off and stop using it. This comes after reports of some of the phones catching fire.

This is not the first time Samsung have had problems with the Note7.

In September, the company recalled and replaced 2.5 million of them after receiving complaints that the batteries were exploding. It would now appear that the replacement phones may also be faulty, with customers being advised to switch them off.

Samsung is investigating, but it’s likely the problem is to do with batteries.

Many smartphones are powered by lithium-ion batteries, which are a special type of rechargeable battery. Companies use them because they allow them to make the phones smaller, more efficient and charge faster.However, this type of battery has been known to be quite unstable and can burst into flames or even explode.

Samsung have said that people who have a Galaxy Note7 will be able to return the phones for a refund or swap it for a different Samsung phone.

Some airlines, including Air New Zealand, don’t allow you to fly with a Samsung Note7.
