Here’s the full statement:
“We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7. Because consumers’ safety remains our top priority, Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place.
We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available.”
There is no definitive claim that the Galaxy Note 7 will return, but we believe chances are Samsung just gets rid of the device itself because the potential harm to its brand. Consumers will then have to wait until February for another flagship from the company.
Aside from recalling both original and replacement units, Samsung is officially ending sales of the phone globally; therefore, do not buy a Galaxy Note 7 if you see one on sale anywhere. The device could harm you and the people around you upon exploding, hence why no one should be selling it anymore.
If you have an original or replacement Galaxy Note 7, please contact the company you bought the device from. Carriers and retailers are in communication with Samsung and are prepared to guide you through the return/exchange process.
