What’s the Problem?

October 12, 2016 – Samsung’s announcement followed a nearly a week of controversy surrounding the Note 7, which was recalled last month over what was thought to be a defect in the devices’ lithium-ion battery. The company launched a campaign to replace the smartphones and investigate the problem, but the plan was scrapped following at least 8 reports of fire in the replacement devices.

A replacement Note 7 caught fire on a Southwest Airlines plane before takeoff on Monday at Louisville International Airport, forcing the evacuation of all passengers and crew members. At least 7 other reports of fire and explosions in the smartphones were reported in the U.S. and overseas.

On Sunday, Samsung announced that it had temporarily discontinued production of the Note 7 after all 4 major U.S. carriers of the smartphone — Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint — stopped exchanging or selling the devices. That temporary discontinuation became permanent yesterday.

When Samsung issued the original Note 7 recall last month, the company projected losses of up to $1 billion. But now that it has permanently discontinued production of the device, Samsung faces a potentially unrecoverable $17 billion dollars in lost sales revenue.
