Samsung will probably have a very sad holiday season this year, as it looks like the company will no longer have a top-of-the-line Galaxy Note phablet in its portfolio. What we hoped to remain one or two isolated incidents turned into a stream of at least five Galaxy Note 7 devices blowing up/igniting/overheating last week, all of them being replacement units that were supposed to be safe.

South Korean Yonhap News Agency cited an unnamed source working for a company in Samsung's supply chain who revealed that the tech giant had halted production of the Galaxy Note 7. For now, this is a temporary measure required to investigate the origin of the problems. Unfortunately, the company's image - or at least the consumers' trust in the Note 7 - has received a heavy blow and it will be pretty hard to recover from it.

Samsung has not issued any official statement yet, but in the US things are not going bright. All major US carriers have decided to stop issuing Galaxy Note 7 replacements and to offer their customers full support to replace these troubled handsets with other devices in the portfolio. We will surely hear more about this smoking hot story later this week, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
