Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding issue has caused the company to recall all the units which may end up costing the Korean company over a billion dollars.
SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus have announced that customers who have purchased the Galaxy Note 7 can get a full refund for returning their handset.
In case you can’t recall, there have been many incidents of the smartphone catching fire — with batteries exploding — while charging. Samsung took the issue seriously and it was later revealed that the main cause is faulty batteries in some of the handsets which caused the company to recall the handsets.
In the United States, T-Mobile also offered users with a full refund for the handset. The Korean company is also giving its customers an option to swap the device with a Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 edge at any of their service centers at no additional charges.
Hopefully, Samsung will be able to figure out the root cause for this issue and fix this before things get out of hand. We’ll update you as soon as we hear anything more about this issue and when customers will be able to purchase the Galaxy Note 7.
