Following the recent reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7, the South Korean Technology giant, Samsung has reported that it hasn’t yet figured out what triggers explosions in the Galaxy note 7, however Samsung is reassuring customers that they are still working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the factory issue.

Samsung CEO admitted in a press briefing that the Samsung Galaxy note 7 is a fail.

“For the benefit of consumers’ safety, we stopped sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 and have consequently decided to stop production. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device are advised to power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available at our Samsung Authorized Service Centres. Customers are advised to return their Galaxy Note7 to Samsung Authorized Service Centres and be guided with available options”, the statement added.Samsung said in a statement.

Although the Galaxy Note7 has not been released in Nigeria, the current Galaxy Note7 users, despite the original place of purchase, according to the phone manufacturer are kindly advised to visit the nearest Samsung Authorized Service Centre for immediate assistance few weeks ago.

“Those who have already returned their Galaxy Note7 will also be contacted from Samsung for their options. “We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to customers and partners who have trusted and waited for the Galaxy Note7”, Emmanouil Revmatas, Director and Business Leader, Information Mobile and Technology, Samsung Electronics West Africa said in a statement made available to the media.

Meanwhile in a brand loyalty and customer retention race, Samsung plans to launch a new tablet (with the features of the Galaxy note 7 S-Pen ) in the U.S. later this week. The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen packs solid hardware and a sharp display into a slim tablet that won’t break the bank.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen offers a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200-pixel display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a large 7,300mAh battery that promises up to 13 hours of video playback, a Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, an 8-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Samsung’s unique selling point is the S Pen. It’s been used in Samsung tablets before but is primarily a staple of its Galaxy Note smartphones, the latest of which was totally killed off earlier this month. Now customers’ will be able to take advantage of some of those features again, like the ability to create an animate GIF with any video, create action Memos, sketch in S Note and more.

The Galaxy Tab A will launch on October 28 in the United States. It’s priced at $349.99.
