Samsung In Galaxy Note 7 Recall Mode

samsung-note-7U.S. safety regulators have announced a formal recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 after reports of fires caused by faulty batteries.

The South Korean technology company had already launched a voluntary recall after user complaints about ‘exploding’ phones.

According to Samsung, the problem affects 2.5 million devices globally, including 1 million in the U.S.

The recall comes at a crucial time as rival Apple has just released its new iPhone 7 flagship model.
