Samsung Recalls Galaxy Note 7

Samsung has formally issued a recall of one million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in the United States, offering replacements or refunds.

The Korean company has received 92 reports of batteries overheating in the U.S and issued the recall in cooperation with the consumer product safety commission.

This is a huge setback for Samsung, which hoped the Galaxy Note 7 would bolster sales as its biggest rival, Apple, launched the latest iPhone.
