Samsung 'adjusts' Note7 production following fresh spate of fire reports


Amid reports of five replacement Galaxy Note7 models catching fire in the U.S. alone, Samsung says it is “temporarily adjusting” the production schedule of its beleaguered smartphone. It’s careful wording, and follows a report from the Yonhap News Agency that Samsung has suspended production of the phone in cooperation with safety regulators from South Korea, China and the U.S.

The Yonhap News Agency reports production has been “temporarily suspended,” quoting a source at one of Samsung’s suppliers. But for it’s part, Samsung uses different language in its statement to the press: “We are temporarily adjusting the Galaxy Note 7 production schedule in order to take further steps to ensure quality and safety matters.”
