Samsung Electronics is halting all sales of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone and will replace about 2.5 million units after reports that at least 35 units caught fire due to a battery defect shortly after the phone’s release. South Korea-based Samsung said the recall is being undertaken in all 10 countries where the phone is sold, marking a major blow to the company in its bid to take market share from Apple’s iPhone. Samsung has shipped about 2.5 million units of the Galaxy Note 7 since its launch on Aug 19. More was written on this recall and related problems in the Consumer Section.
