Samsung to Recall Note7 Amid Reports of Fires
Samsung plans to recall the Galaxy Note7 smartphone after a handful of reports suggest the device may catch fire while charging.

The company said it will replace the phones already sold, but preparing the replacements will take several weeks. For now, all sales of the phone are to be halted. Samsung did not say what owners of the Note7 should do with their device while awaiting their replacement.
