Formerly, Samsung strived hard to withhold the Galaxy Note 7 users from using it and also to regain all the units that sold until now. Last year in November, the firm alleged that around 85 percent of Note 7 units which sold in South Korea and Europe are either returned or exchanged with new devices. Whereas now, around 96 percent of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are regained by Samsung from the customers.
Considering it, the US Department of Transportation clinched to ask Airlines to skip notifications about the unrequited Note 7 devices while pre-boarding. The firm rolled out an update to Note 7 handsets via T-Mobile earlier which halted the devices to work unless connected to a charger. As a result, now 96% of Note 7 units are returned by the consumers, and also the Samsung’s investigation reports for the cause of Note 7 explosion to be revealed this month.
Together with our wireless carriers, we have taken aggressive action to limit the remaining phones’ ability to work as mobile devices, further enhancing participation in the recall.
