Faulty and Overheating: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Batteries Recalled

18 Août 2017

Samsung is scheduled to announce the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at an "Unpacked" event in New York City on August 23. "The refurbishment program was managed by FedEx Supply Chain and operated independently of Samsung".

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be compatible with their Smart Switch software to help you transfer your photos, contacts and music from your old phone.

USA regulators are warning that the batteries placed into some refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphones are counterfeit and could overheat, posing a fire risk.

We've seen loads of iPhone 8 dummy models surfacing lately, but most Galaxy Note 8 leaks have been in digital render form - until now. These batteries have a tendency to overheat, according to the CPSC, which poses risk of burns and fire hazards. A website has been set up with detailed instructions regarding how to process the recall for those with affected Galaxy Note 4 phones.

So far, there's only been one report of a phone overheating and no damage to people or property because of it. The batteries are non-OEM, which means they were not supplied as original equipment by the phone's manufacturer, Samsung.

It looks as if Samsung's Galaxy S8 continues to be a success as the reports indicate the device outsold every other individual Android smartphone during the second quarter of this year. "We are closely engaged with our customer to make sure all of these lithium batteries are safely and quickly returned, and will replace those lithium batteries free of charge for consumers".

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled battery and power down their smartphone", reads the recall notice from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CSPC is specific that this is only for those units "distributed as replacement phones through AT&T's Insurance program only".

KitGuru Says: At least this time around, the Galaxy Note blunder had absolutely nothing to do with Samsung itself.

A Samsung Electronics official said it can not confirm the report made by the Australian media, adding the company is looking into the details of the sales brochure.
