Samsung holds an uncanny future with the world still aware of the harm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 brought. To this day, a clear explanation has not been pinpointed on the cause of the battery explosions and there are some who still cling on to the controversial phablet.

Either way, it should be noted that some folks who got hold of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have not taken the initiative to return the device. Despite the potential threats of explosions or fires, some are holding on to the belief that the problem for the phablet is regional.

The reasoning could be acceptable only that there is no definitive way to find out which are defective and which are not. That said, it would be safer to take the safety precaution of simply returning the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and see what they can get in exchange for the inconvenience.

As far as US owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is concerned, it is believed that there are some who have not yet returned their phablets. The reasons vary but to make sure, Samsung is reportedly issuing an update tied up to battery charging limits.

The patch will limit the battery charging of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to just 60 percent, 9to5 Mac reported. Samsung plans to roll out the update soon which will hopefully cover about 15 percent of phablet owners who have not yet returned their devices. Aside from limiting the battery charging for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, reminder pop-up notifications each time the device is charged will occur.

The same scenario will happen when owners reboot or turn on the screen of their device, Ubergizmo reported. This is the same update that was previously planned for the European market where limiting the charging capacity to 60 percent can hopefully lower the possible mishaps tied up to Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery explosions.
