Samsung China will recall 1,858 Galaxy Note 7 units


Last updated: September 14th, 2016 at 16:14 UTC+02:00

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine – China’s quality watchdog – has confirmed today that Samsung will be recalling 1,858 units of the Galaxy Note 7 in the country. These units are different from the ones that Samsung is officially selling in China right now which is why sales of the Galaxy Note 7 haven’t been suspended in the People’s Republic even though they have been suspended in all other markets.

These units were partly sold in China via an official Samsung website prior to the handset’s proper launch in China on September 1 as part of the company’s testing scheme. In China, Samsung is officially selling Galaxy Note 7 units which feature batteries from China’s ATL that’s now believed to be the only supplier of Galaxy Note 7 batteries as Samsung SDI looks into the flaw to try and understand why this entire debacle happened in the first place. Customers who purchased their Galaxy Note 7 in China after it was formally released have nothing to worry about even though it’s the only place in the world where you can officially purchase a Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung right now.
