It’s the final farewell for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Samsung Singapore implemented on December 28 an OTA update that completely restricted the smartphone from charging past zero percent. That’s tantamount to rendering the device totally useless. The last five percent who have held on to their Galaxy Note 7 for whatever reason will end up having a mere collector’s item.
However, all is not lost as Samsung Singapore is providing a lifeline for exchange/refund. Just call 1800-SAMSUNG.
“Samsung is thankful for the support from customers and is deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused.” was the official statement from Samsung.
