Samsung has suspended production of the Galaxy Note 7

Samsung is suspending production of the Galaxy Note 7 after a number of replacement phones — those that Samsung claimed were safe after a recall — caught fire and sent at least one person to the hospital. The report comes from the Korean news agency Yonhap.

The halt in production is said to be in cooperation with safety regulators in the US, China, and Korea, according to Yonhap.

I wonder if the news coming out of South Korea right now is a great opportunity as the U.S. and world are focused on the U.S. Presidential debate. It could also be that right now it is early morning in South Korea after executives are able to address this from the weekend.

At least five replacement Note 7 phones caught fire in the US alone this week, and several of Samsung’s carrier partners announced they would stop selling the phones entirely.
