Update 10/11/16: Samsung has officially ceased all Galaxy Note 7 production indefinitely.
Samsung has temporarily suspended production of their Note 7 and Note 7 Plus devices after reports of replacement devices batteries malfunctioning.
Last month, Samsung issued a recall for 2.5 million Note 7 and Note 7 Plus devices after multiple reports of battery fires. Since then, Samsung has issued many preventative measures to remedy the new devices’ malfunctions, including an update that caps battery charges for the initial devices, and now replacement devices.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has initiated an investigation into the replacement device battery malfunctions. In light of the investigation, major carriers, including AT&T, have ceased Galaxy Note 7 exchange programs. Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon have confirmed Note 7 users can exchange the device for another smartphone in their inventory, but will no longer provide a Galaxy Note 7 replacement device.
