Galaxy Note 7 smartphones have been ceased after reports of devices it had deemed safe catching fire and the firm had already reduced Galaxy Note 7 production volumes.
“We recently readjusted the production volume for thorough investigation and quality control, but putting consumer safety as top priority, we have reached a final decision to halt production of Galaxy Note 7s,” the company said.
“For the benefit of consumers’ safety, we stopped sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 and have consequently decided to stop production”.

Samsung said it had sold about 45,000 Note 7s through pre-orders in Europe.
