If you were left thinking as to what Samsung would do after the recall of the Galaxy Note 7 units, you are in for an answer. Samsung has confessed in a statement given by its spokes person to ‘motherboard’ that it will be taking care of the recalled units by destroying them completely and there is a process being devised for the disposal.
However it was not made evident as to what the method will be. It is expected that the mobile units will not be recycled as a whole. This is because the mobile phone contains rare elements which cannot be recovered through recycling. Now almost 2million mobile phones are going to hit the trash and so you can imagine the environmental damage that will occur in such a landfill.
Now many had speculated that the amount of Galaxy note 7 units recalled and the discontinuation of the production of the mobile phone may cause the company to reuse some of the parts. However Samsung has made an unprecedented decision to get rid of all and that means all. No handset will be spared. Due to the recall model Samsung is now actually in a tight spot.
It has adjusted its third quarter earnings so that it can account for the $2 million losses it has incurred with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and also the £17 billion market cap loss because of the launch of this phone. Analysts predict the loss to increase. The embarrassment attached with the short life of the phone is far from over especially for the poor Samsung Public Relation team and maybe even its accountants.
Now remember guys if you still have a Galaxy Note 7 on you, just power it off and make sure you return it to the company. if you are in a intention to delay just keep the phone before your eyes and most importantly away from flammable material at all times.
