Samsung Has Stopped The Production Of Galaxy Note 7

After 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.
