Samsung to remotely disable Galaxy Note 7s in the U.S.

Galaxy Note 7

According to a new revelation, #Samsung is finally deciding to call the curtains on units of the #GalaxyNote7 that are still in operation. According to a U.S. Cellular customer, the smartphone spontaneously displayed a message suggesting that a new update sent over by Samsung will permanently disable the device. The message apparently read “AS OF DEC. 15, SAMSUNG WILL MODIFY THE SOFTWARE TO PREVENT THE GALAXY NOTE7 FROM CHARGING. THE PHONE WILL NO LONGER WORK.”

The company has already recalled the handset in large numbers, but there are still a handful of customers who are in possession of the device. By sending out this update, Samsung can ensure that no other customers are in risk of getting themselves injured.

Although this message appeared on an American unit of the smartphone, it’s safe to assume that the Korean manufacturer will take similar action for global units of the device that are still operational.
