Samsung might finally pull the plug on the Galaxy Note 7 as reports of carriers halting sales and incidents with the same exploding issues continue to emerge even after it was relaunched.
AT&T, one of America's top network carriers, is considering a stop on the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 after cases of exploding devices emerged even after the company recalled and reintroduced the flagship device in September, Bloomberg reported last week.
In more recent news, Samsung reportedly decided to stop production of the controversial smartphone due to reports of the device burning up or exploding even after the company conducted additional security and safety measures on the replacement units.
Could all these be signs that the Korean company is finally pulling the plug on its increasingly disappointing smartphone?
Wireless Carriers Ditch Galaxy Note 7
According to the Bloomberg report published on October 7, AT&T is thinking about halting sales of the controversial Samsung smartphone.
Unsurprisingly, Bloomberg's anonymous source, who reportedly has close ties with the American company, revealed that the reason behind this discussion is the exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices.
At the time, AT&T spokesman Fletcher Cook declined to comment, though another representative from the company has officially confirmed via CNN Money that the carrier will temporarily stop replacing exploding Note 7 devices.
"Based on recent reports, we're no longer exchanging new Note 7s at this time, pending further investigation of these reported incidents."
