Samsung on Friday announced that they are going to brick Note 7 in America by issuing a software that will prevent the phone from charging or working as mobile devices means it will be nothing good as trash.
This is due to a large number of explosions of Note 7. Samsung states that customer safety is their top priority.
Early in the months, Samsung offered financial incentives to exchange their phones and in some countries they issued an update that made phone less useful.Although Note 7 is banned in US flights but still some people wants to keep their exploding phones with them.
But after this latest update they will not be having any choice because phone will be useless.
Samsung complete statement states:
Consumer safety remains our highest priority and we’ve had overwhelming participation in the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program so far, with more than 93 percent of all recalled Galaxy Note7 devices returned.
To further increase participation, a software update will be released starting on December 19th and will be distributed within 30 days. This software update will prevent U.S. Galaxy Note7 devices from charging and will eliminate their ability to work as mobile devices. Together with our carrier partners, we will be notifying consumers through multiple touchpoints to encourage any remaining Galaxy Note7 owners to participate in the program and to take advantage of the financial incentives available.
Anyone who has not yet returned their device should immediately power it down and contact their carrier to obtain a refund or exchange, or visit our website at Samsung.com/us/note7recall for more information.
