Not too long ago, it was revealed that over 140,000 Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units are not yet returned in the company’s home country, South Korea.
According to a new report, Samsung will not kill the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea this year. Instead, it will reduce the charging limit from 60 percent as it did with the handset in some markets.
In case you don’t know, the company has teamed up with carriers in several markets to disable the handset later this month. It has already done so in Australia, New Zealand and some markets, and the US carriers are also set to kill the handset, but the same cannot be done in the company’s home country as there are still a handful of unreturned units.
The previous report hinted that the company may not be able to do so as it would create a backlash from existing loyal customers and they have to wait for sometime until the number of returned units reach at least 95 percent in the country before they kill the handset completely.
If you’re still holding on to your Galaxy Note 7, it’s recommended that you should return the handset and avail the exchange offer the company has to offer or get a refund.
