Samsung has issued a statement confirming Note 7 production changes. Short of admitting a general halt, the company said that there are production changes in the production of Note 7 device.
“Temporarily adjusting the production schedule to ensure quality and safety matters,” the statement read in part.
With replacement Note 7’s increasingly catching fire, it’s safe to say neither Samsung nor the CPSC will be in any hurry to resume shipping Note 7 replacements until the battery problem has been definitively rectified.
According to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, the Korean manufacturer has halted production as it investigates a spate of fires with its supposedly-safe Galaxy Note 7 replacement units.
The outlet cited an unnamed source at a Samsung supplier as saying that the decision was reached in cooperation with authorities in China, the United States and Korea.
