Samsung temporarily halts Galaxy Note 7 production

Seoul, Oct 10 (IANS) Amid reports that some Note 7 replacements have caught fire, the South Korean giant Samsung Electronics Company has temporarily suspended the production of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, an official said on Monday.

The halt is in cooperation with consumer safety regulators from South Korea, the US and China.

“This measure includes a Samsung plant in Vietnam that is responsible for global shipments (of the Galaxy Note 7),” Yonhap news agency quoted an official as saying.

Samsung started selling the Note 7 in South Korea on August 19 but announced a global recall of 2.5 million units in September following reports of some of the devices catching fire while being charged.

The company has encouraged owners of the Note 7 to swap their devices with new ones, but media reports said some new Note 7 in the US and Taiwan had also caught fire.
