In the first assessments of the consequences of the explosion of smartphones Samsung Galaxy Note 7, analysts said that the company will quickly recover from the scandal. But when even airlines began to ban the use of phablet on board aircraft due to the frequent cases of device fires, the situation deteriorated sharply. Samsung’s market value plummeted by $ 22 billion in just two days, and to reassure investors, the Korean giant urgently published preliminary results of an internal investigation. The cause of the explosions was a mistake in the production of batteries. Due to excessive pressure on the plate of the battery cells, contact can occur between the positive and negative poles, causing intense heating. More accurate data will be announced later. Samsung strongly recommends that Galaxy Note 7 users turn off their smartphone and replace it with a new one, but not everyone has heeded this advice. To reduce the risk of an explosion, on September 20, all devices in the Korean market will receive a software update that limits the charging of the gadget to 60% of capacity. This was reported on the front page of the local newspaper Seoul Shinmun. Since the device will start working at least 40% less, Note 7 owners will be more willing to hand over dangerous specimens. Whether this measure extends to other regions is not known. By the way, Samsung has denied rumors about the forced deactivation of smartphones on September 30. If 35 phablets burned out in the world on September 1, now in the USA alone more than 70 cases of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explosion have been reported. Some users are in no hurry to replace the device, because the procedure itself seems too burdensome to them. On the first visit, service center employees pick up a potentially explosive device and give the smartphone for temporary use (not Note 7), and only after the second visit can you get a new smartphone.
