Samsung debunks rumours that they would be deactivating Note 7 units from 30th September
If you are one of those that have been diligently following the stories of the Galaxy Note 7 up till this point, you would know that one of the latest information to turn up is that the South Korean OEM is planning to deactivate all of the units of the smartphones that haven’t been turned back in for the recall programme as at the 30th of September.
This was said to be a kind of precaution that would push the users of the faulty devices to send their units in for a replacement also and prevent future occurrences of explosions.
While this has already been lauded in some quarters as an effective counter-measure, it seems that we have been led down the wrong path by someone spurning fake news contents as Samsung themselves have denied any truth being behind any of the aforementioned details.
Confirming it, the company said that they have no plans on ground to deactivate the units of the smartphone on or before the said date and users can hold on to their units with peace of mind.
They also mentioned that all of the information that would be needed by the customers as regards the recall would be listed on their official website and should they plan to deactivate in the future, that would be the first place to see such info.
