    Why would they recall? The only thing I have heard issues with is them holding shipments for Asian countries. Not the US?

    I feel bad for Samsung when they are finally going strong with sales. Hopefully there won't be a recall outside of Korea.
    Samsung phones are manufactured in two places, South Korea and Vietnam. Now it comes down to which would be included, the international version only or all.

    Exploding batteries.

    So far, they've pinpointed the issue down to a battery made by a South Korean subcontractor.

    Not sure if any other phones are affected. They're probably running down the list now.

    Mine ain't gone boom, or showed any heat anomalies. A volatile battery usually shows it's cards early and also has capacitance issues (noticeably lower battery life and heat). If it is 56 ohm pull resister, to battery power control issue (can make battery go boom)- that is usually also on these newer smart batteries. Smart to a fault.

    Point is the device battery module needs to account for cheap a$$ non OE cables, connector and power supplies. Even an OE product can have quality issues, so the battery control on the device needs to be the gate.

    The problem and testing is for the 8890 only. The snapdragon variant is fine.
    How do you know this?

    Exactly, which makes me think these reports are false.

    I have just been into a major phone shop in the UK (Carphone Warehouse) who have said all shipments of N7's have been stopped due to quality control issues.

    I remember reading about how a guy dropped his phone, but no cracks, because it was so hot after taking it off charger

    BGR is reporting that Samsung is now saying they will likely offer a full refund or replacement phone to the affected devices. However, they're still saying that as of right now, it only affects South Korea.
    I'm thinking that is only those manufacturered in SK. They only manufacturer in two countries.

    No they are recalling possibly in Belgium right now it seems. It looks like so far phones manufactured in SK only, but don't know if it affects all manufactured there.

    The reports aren't fake -- Just because it isn't happening to 100% of people doesn't mean there isn't a possible issue :P.

    Samsung Electronics Co. is expected to announce an unprecedented recall of all of its newest Galaxy Note 7 phablets sold at home and abroad in less than a week, a company official said Thursday, after reports that a few of the devices exploded while being charged.

    The Samsung official told Yonhap News Agency that the cause of the reported explosions has been traced to the battery of the new phablet.

    Well, it looks like a recall is probably going to happen soon.

    Apparently it's not about where the phones are manufactured but the maker of the battery pack. I read there are 2 makers they use and only found the issue with one. So those are the ones they'll probably look to replace. Guess we will see if they find out more info.

    I call B.S. until we get official sources.
    Not just BGR, most of the major tech sites are reporting. So until IL Samsung actually says anything, they are the sources lol. I believe they're all quilting Samsung as well. So we will see.

    Yeah it seems to be where they are manufactured because they also make batteries in the two countries also. They are only mentioning SK manufactured phones right now.

    That could change, but right now it seems to be very tiny number of phones affected.

    BUT news is being updated, that could change.

    I'd still be cautious if I were you.

    I've had mine since August 18th and while it has been fine so far, I'm watching this space for any updates.

    Honestly, every Note7 owner should too.

    wow...very interesting. Full recall sounds like a possible scenario. Also, the quote sounds like they are considering replacing phone..and not just battery.

    Of note in this is "Products installed with the problematic battery account for less than 0.1 percent of the entire volume sold". So if true, 99.9% of phones are fine.

    Correct, as of now. It seems like a very small number affected.
