Samsung Spokesperson: U.S. Galaxy Note 7 Solutions Will Be Through CPSC; No Charge-Limit OTA Yet

Samsung Spokesperson: U.S. Galaxy Note 7 Solutions Will Be Through CPSC; No Charge-Limit OTA Yet

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.

As XDA's PC Hardware Editor, we continue to take a look at how developers can best take advantage of the hardware offerings in the market. Our focus remains on Linux and relevant discussion for developers; but we also will take time to look at other components as many of our developers use these systems for many other reasons.I continue to offer coverage on mobile and other technology relevant to our audience, especially as PC and mobile hardware lines begin to blur. I also have a tendency to refer to my career and experiences as relevant to our discussions on XDA.
