Samsung Has Stopped The Production Of Galaxy Note 7After more reports of replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones catching fire, Samsung has temporarily suspended production.
The Korean paper cited an anonymous source working at one of Samsung's suppliers, and the company has not yet commented.
Already, AT&T and T-Mobile have said they will stop Galaxy Note 7 sales and replacements while investigations into the incidents continue.
Concern about the replacement models began with a model burning through the carpet on a Southwest flight and has not slowed since.
Over the weekend, the additional reports came to light and may have left Samsung with no other option.
It has been over a month since the Galaxy Note 7 recall began due to issues with its battery cell, and if the reports are confirmed we may be in line for a second recall.
We have contacted Samsung, as well as the CPSC, and will update this post if there is a response.
