Samsung releases official statement, asks that all Note 7 units be powered off
Personally, Samsung themselves have now broken the ice on the latest issues of the replacement units of their Galaxy Note 7 devices exploding in the market and via an official press release, they have advised that all the users of their units should power down and keep away the smartphone till they have conclusive results on the ongoing investigations.
This advice is not going out to those that have yet to exchange their own units only but also, those that have turned in the old units for the replacement devices as none of these could be deemed safe for the time being.
This is coming after the sad incident of six replacement units, till now at least, exploding again after the company has promised to have fixed the issue with it.
It was also stated by Samsung just a few hours ago that although they run the risk of explosion, the Galaxy Note 7 units were actually safe for usage and now, something must have changed for them to give this kind of announcement.
Don’t take this as a joke. This is not a drill, definitely. If you’ve got the Note 7, power down now.
