Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 update partially solves the battery issue

Galaxy Note 7

While #Samsung is currently in damage control mode over the Galaxy Note 7, the company might have a temporary fix for the exploding battery issue. In South Korea, the company will apparently send out an update starting September 20 which will basically restrict the device from charging beyond 60%. Since overcharging is the root cause for the device to overheat, this might be a good solution.

However, users who are actually concerned by the recent reports might be looking to claim their refund or replacements if they’re feeling generous enough. Samsung will start sending out replacement units of the Galaxy Note 7 starting September 19, so if you still have the old Galaxy Note 7 with you, this might be a good option.

Perhaps this is a trial run of sorts as the update has only been announced in South Korea. We’ll keep you updated if the company decides to send out the update to other regions as well.

Do you think an update like this would reduce concerns among customers about the Galaxy Note 7?
