The reviews of Note 7 were on the peak of excellence and then there were reports that the battery had some serious issues. Korean news agency Yonhap first reported that Samsung was preparing the recall yesterday, and a spokesperson later confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that sales had been halted in the company’s native country of South Korea.
Products installed with the problematic battery account for less than 0.1 percent of the entire volume sold,The problem can be simply resolved by changing the battery, but we’ll come up with convincing measures for our consumers.” – Samsung
On the serious side, Samsung said it has sold 2.5 million devices so far, and it plans to replace them all.
This whole incident indicates a very bad luck for samsung as after a long while samsung was on a smooth road of profits and smooth sales.
