Samsung plans to recall the Galaxy Note7 smartphone after a handful of reports suggest the device may catch fire while charging. "We take every incident report from our valued customers very seriously. In response to recently reported cases of the new Galaxy Note7, we conducted a thorough investigation and found a battery cell issue. Because our customers’ safety is an absolute priority at Samsung, we have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note7." 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.
