Samsung has stopped the production of the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung is taking extreme measures of stopping the production of the Note 7 after several reports of replacement Note 7 exploding. The pressure on Samsung has been growing after several new replaced Note 7 devices caught fire in the United States over the past days.

South Korean news service YonHap reports that Samsung halted the production of the Samsun Galaxy Note 7 in a plant in Vietnam, which is supposed to be responsible for the international shipments. The information comes from an official representative of the manufacturing partner of Samsung.

Major US carriers AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon have stopped selling the Galaxy Note 7 already.

For Samsung the Note 7 battery issue is turning now into a real disaster. Apparently the testing and quality control on the replacement Note 7 was not sufficient. The first recall was still acceptable and most owners of the Note 7 stuck with Samsung and did not jump to another smartphone vendor. A second recall is going to be a different matter.

Samsung has not yet reacted to the new situation. We expect an announcement on Monday.

Quality control is everything for mass market electronics. Just imagine Apple would face a problem like that. It is likely that Apple has already reviewed their quality control measures in regards to iPhone battery to make sure they do not run into a disaster like Samsung.
