The new ignition of Note 7. Samsung has suspended the production of gadgets
A source from Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Monday that the company had suspended the production of smartphones Galaxy Note 7. This has happened due to the data that the gadgets of the last model, which the company has replaced, also ignite. The incident is regarded as the worst crisis in the history of Samsung Electronics.
Last week the smoke blanketing of the smartphone Note 7 on board the passenger aircraft in the US caused the evacuation of the whole plane. Sales and the replacement of smartphones are being stopped among the major US and Australian operators. All of these events can become catastrophic for Samsung. The company, the largest manufacturer of smartphones , was not be able to solve the problem of the gadgets ignition, even by exchanging them. It may finally bring down the company’s mobile business.
Samsung has not given any comments on the suspension of the production yet. The source, which wished to remain anonymous, did not say when the production had been stopped and it is still unknown if the specific problem has been identified. On Monday the company has issued a statement that there is a correction of Galaxy Note 7 supply volume because of the information that some of them can ignite. Samsung clarified that the correction is being made to conduct a thorough check and improve the quality control.
The global withdrawal of 2.5 million of Note 7 because of the battery ignition was announced by the company on September 2. However, on 5 October the phone, which was given to replace a broken gadget, began to reek on board the airplane of the airline Southwest Airline in the United States.
Major airlines and airports urge the passengers not to use the new Samsung smartphone on board the airplanes. The Hong Kong International airport “strongly recommended” its passengers not to use Note 7 on board the aircraft as well as leave them in the baggage.
