Samsung Officialy suspends global sales of Galaxy Note 7



Samsung Electronics Co. said it suspended the global sales of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet Tuesday October 11, weeks after it resumed the sales following an unprecedented replacement program.

Samsung said in a statement posted on its website that it has decided to stop global sales and replacements of its Galaxy Note 7 after consulting with the state-run Korean Agency for Technology and Standards and related authorities.

Earlier this week, Samsung suspended production of the Galaxy Note 7 amid a series of media reports that some of its replacements have caught fire.

The South Korean tech giant announced the global recall of the controversial handset in early September due to reports of some handsets catching fire while charging. The device first went on sale on Aug. 19.

Samsung Newsroom:

Samsung Will Ask All Global Partners to Stop Sales and Exchanges of Galaxy Note7 While Further Investigation Takes Place.


On October 11.

We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7. Because consumers’ safety remains our top priority, Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place.

We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available.
