Quality Testing To Delay Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Shipments


Riding on the coattails of the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung had big hopes for the new Galaxy Note 7, especially when the huge number of pre-orders caused Samsung to delay releasing the Note 7 in certain regions. However, it seems there may be a snafu with the Note 7's battery or even the operating system. There have already been a number of complaints from users about the device locking up and/or ending up in a continual bootloop cycle and recently, there has been some reports of the Galaxy Note 7's battery exploding.

Now in spite of Samsung not making any official announcement that there is a problem with the smartphone, Samsung are reported to have released the following statement today, "Shipments of the Galaxy Note 7 are being delayed due to additional tests being conducted for product quality." The company did not mention what they are testing or what type of quality control they were looking at. Samsung has reported that sales of the Galaxy Note 7 so far, have far exceeded the supply, and they are working with suppliers to keep manufacturing as many of the popular devices that they are able to.

Whatever the reason, Samsung needs to handle this problem as soon as possible and ideally before leery buyers decide the Galaxy Note 7 is not for them and move on to another smartphone. Especially considering the Galaxy Note 7 is Samsung's premier device. One which comes packing a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED always-on display that saves considerably on battery life. The US packs the Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor with the Adreno 530 GPU for outstanding graphics. It packs 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 64GB of the faster UFS 2.0 memory that is expandable via a microSD card. It is IP68 Certified against water resistance and uses a 3,500 mAh non-removable battery with rapid charge and quick wireless charging. The camera comes right from the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and provides outstanding photos. As well as featuring the famous S-Pen that has been improved once again by doubling the sensitivity, putting a 'clicker' of the end of the pen and not allowing it to go in backwards.
