Samsung is confronting another emergency after allegedly stopping generation of its Galaxy Note 7 cell phone taking after reestablished worries about it overheating.
Refering to an anonymous authority at a Samsung supplier, South Korea’s Yonhap news office said the firm took the choice to quit creating the telephone to secure buyers.
