Samsung reiterated several times that China was not affected by the recall of Galaxy Note 7, as the company used a battery made by another supplier for the device sold in China. However, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People’s Republic of China has today announced that Samsung China would recall some of Galaxy Note 7s sold in China.
According to the administration, Samsung will later announce their recall plan for China. The affected phones can burn or even explode under extreme circumstances, which can be really dangerous.
The 1858 units of problematic Note 7 were mainly manufactured between July 20 and August 5, 2016. The South Korea company assures that they’d provide a brand-new device as replacement, but didn’t mention how the recall would be conducted.
