Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Date, News & Update: How’s Company Post Massive Note 7 Recall?
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled, abruptly stopping the winning streak of Samsung. The South Korean tech giant has taken the top spot in ranking recently with its great demand and high sales of the Galaxy S7 series and the Note 7.
However, the late Galaxy Note 7 recall incident may have been a wrong move for Samsung at a wrong time. Recent reports have noted the reason for the recall which was due to the Galaxy Note 7 battery units which have exploded because of a problem with the housed cell. The Note 7 does not come with a replaceable battery unit as well.
This was expected to be the main reason why Samsung has voluntarily taken, the units back from its customers. The that were returned will reportedly be replaced by the tech giant. Samsung has also stopped the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 all over the world.
It has only been two weeks since the sales have started, and Samsung had already been able to sell 2.5 million units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 all over the world. However, this setback was not expected to affect China since Samsung is reportedly using a different battery unit on the units earmarked for this country, reports USA Today.
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery issue persists, Samsung may lose its winning momentum that had begun with the Galaxy S7 lineup. This may also give a breather to Apple, whose sales have declined for two consecutive quarters, according to Android Central.
However, the Galaxy Note 7 recall was expected to be a blessing to Apple. As already known, the iPhone maker is preparing to release the iPhone 7 series on Sept. 7. Samsung was expected to make the right call by voluntarily asking questions and to write about the purchased devices along with the inconvenience it caused to the customers that will affect the company in a long run.
