Following multiple reports of replacement Galaxy Note 7 units exploding in the same fashion as recalled units, a report out of Korea claims that Samsung has suspended production of the Galaxy Note 7 temporarily. South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency cites an unnamed source in its report which claims that Samsung has halted the production of its flagship for now.

Samsung’s decision to temporarily suspend production has reportedly been made in cooperation with authorities in the United States, China and South Korea claimed an unnamed source at a Samsung partner company. For what it’s worth, Samsung has not yet commented on this report so there hasn’t been an official denial or confirmation from the company as yet.

Many reports have emerged in the past week of replacement Galaxy Note 7 devices exploding. These units were supposed to be safe and yet they appear to have the same issue as the recalled devices. Samsung’s carrier partners are already taking precautions. Not only are they allowing customers with replacement units to exchange their handsets for another device, AT&T has decided to completely stop sales of the Galaxy Note 7 until concrete steps are taken by Samsung to ensure that this issue is put to rest once and for all.
