Samsung Recalls Millions Of Galaxy 7 Smartphones
One month after their debut, the new Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are being recalled by Samsung worldwide.
Samsung made the voluntary recall to their latest Galaxy phones after reports of them catching fire while charging.
According to CNN Money, Samsung discovered a problem with the battery in some of the phones and they have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note 7 is 10 countries, including the U.S.
Customers are being offered a new product for free in the coming weeks as well as a $25 gift card or bill credit for the inconvenience.
2.5 million Galaxy Note 7s have been sold worldwide.
U.S. users have been offered an exchange of their device for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. That exchange offer will start next week.
Only Galaxy Note 7s in China were unaffected, since they use a different battery supplier. No word on if the Chinese smartphones would be recalled anyway.
