From the Samsung Newsroom – 11 October 2016:
We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7. Because consumers’ safety remains our top priority, Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place.
We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available.
Editorial: Samsung has since discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 product line, saying to the Wall Street Journal “Taking our customer’s safety as our highest priority, we have decided to halt sales and production of the Galaxy Note 7.” More information will follow later.
