Earlier today we shared news from The Korea Times about an upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 update in Korea that will limit the maximum charge it is able to hold. Given that several of us own a Note 7 as well we are naturally concerned about this and the possible implications for U.S. carriers.

Thankfully a Samsung spokesperson was quick to clarify with the following statement:

“In the U.S., Samsung is continuing to work with the CPSC and our carrier partners to develop and evaluate solutions that are best for US Note7 owners. No action will be taken without the approval of the CPSC. Customer safety remains our top priority.”

Given nothing has come from the CPSC yet it seems, at least for the time being, that U.S. carriers will not be affected by this. We will continue to provide updates on the story as they arise.
