South Korean tech firm Samsung has permanently ceased production of its high-end Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after reports of devices it had deemed safe catching fire.
Owners are expected to be able to return the phones for a refund or an exchange for a different Samsung phone.
In September, Samsung recalled around 2.5 million phones after complaints of exploding batteries.
It later insisted that all replaced devices were safe, however, those phones were also catching fire.
