The Samsung Note7 is a huge security and safety concern all over the world and it is alarming that there are still 14 million Samsung Note7 users in South Korea. Samsung released a firmware update in the US that forced users to replace their devices but that has not been the case in South Korea. One source reports that Samsung fears that there will be a huge backlash if they did the same in South Korea.

Since the global recall, the recall in South Korea has been 85% but there are a lot of people that are still using the device. I do not know what these people are thinking but they are not safe to say the very least. Compare this to the 95% recall in the US. The recall rate in South Korea is bound to increase as the replacement program will be ending at the end of the month. This will motivate people to replace their phones before the end of the year.

There has been a thorough investigation regarding the Samsung Note7 and one of the important concerns is concerning how Samsung plans to dispose of so many Samsung Note7 devices and whether or not the parts can be reused in future products.

Samsung will be discussing the state of recalls and how and when recalls should end with respective carriers. Rumor has it that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will be more expensive as compared to the S7 and S7 Edge. It has been reported that this will be due to the increasing raw material costs. But it is more than likely that Samsung is looking to make up for the Samsung Note7 loss.

The Samsung Note7 loss has been huge and it will be interesting to see how the company will make a comeback after suffering so badly.
