Galaxy Note 7 Overheats. Battery Issue Noticed. Samsung Recalling Devices

The time of recall is said to be not healthy for the company as Apple is preparing to unveil its iPhone 7 on September 7 and if the fueling issue persists the momentum of Samsung could be threatened.

IDC analyst Tay Xiaohan said, “There’s definitely damage done and the whole incident is detrimental to Samsung’s image… The level of damage will depend on how Samsung addresses this issue quickly and solves the problem.”

Recently social media has been flooded with images posted by people of charred Galaxy Note 7 claiming those either exploded or were overheated.

Samsung has also received dozens of reports from various parts of the world describing the battery cell issue.

The company is also working with its suppliers to remove other affected batteries. More to this, it is also replacing every Note 7 that has been already in the market.

This is not the first time the Note maker is in trouble. Last year there was design flaw issue with its Note 5 device that resulted with problems to the stylus.
