Chips power Samsung and activist case for change

Share

Samsung first issued a recall of the Galaxy Note 7 in early September following dozens of reports of overheating, leading to batteries that explode and catch on fire.

The phone that exploded aboard the plane was a replacement Galaxy Note 7 from AT&T, according to the phone's owner. Many expected that Samsung would resolve this quickly with their reputation on the line.

A replacement model of the troubled Samsung Note 7 smartphone began smoking inside a USA plane on Wednesday, the family which owned it said, signaling that Samsung's solution to its recent scandal may not have worked.

Samsung's Q3's earnings guidance will be released Friday.

Samsung seems to be in safe waters now, but then again, another Galaxy Note 7 almost caught fire as it smoked while it was on an airplane.

Phoenix Police: Do not dress up like clowns

Southwest, in a statement, said the flight was evacuated after a customer reported smoke from a Samsung device. T-Mobile has said that it has resumed sales of the model and will continue doing so. As a result, AT&T and Sprint have both come forward with a solution for owners of the replacement Galaxy Note 7.

The incident at Louisville airport is now being investigated by the US federal agency that is handling the recall of the Galaxy Note7 devices. You can probably imagine what will happen if Samsung is forced to recall the Galaxy Note 7 for a second time. However, it said customers with a replacement device or new Note 7 could exchange it under the company's standard "remorse" policy that lets customers return devices within 14 days.

However, for many, the damage has already been done, with a reported $16 billion being wiped off Samsung's share value following news of the recall.

CPSC's spokesman is said to have declined to make comments on possible actions the commission could take on the ongoing battery fiasco of the Note 7. The company has reportedly sold 2.5 million Note 7s.
