With Samsung officially issuing a recall on its Galaxy Note 7 handsets after reports of the phones exploding, you would think that customers would be rushing out in droves to return what could potentially be a ticking time bomb. However for some reason there are still customers who believe that they aren’t affected by the problem.
What this means is that if you don’t return your Note 7 in exchange for the replacement unit, a software update will prevent you from recharging your phone to more than 60%. According to Samsung, “It is a measure to put consumer safety first but we apologize for causing inconvenience.”
However it should be noted that this is what Samsung plans to do for the South Korean market. It is unclear if Samsung will institute this plan in other parts of the world, but it does sound like a potential plan, although we guess whether or not users will actually bother updating is a different story.
