Die hard users of the Galaxy Note 7 who have decided to ignore the recall because their love for the handset is greater than the fear of it exploding, may only have a few more days left to use it.

It reads: “As of Dec. 15, Samsung will modify the software to prevent the Galaxy Note 7 from charging. The phone will no longer work.”
Samsung has already taken steps to encourage users to return the device, issuing a reminder pop-up message each time the phone’s screen is turned on. It also issued an update to limit the Note 7’s ability to charge beyond 60 per cent.
