Sad NEWS! US bans Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones on flights


The US Department of Transportation has prohibited Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobiles on flights after reports of the apparatus catching fire.

Passengers will not be able to take the phones on flights or in their luggage to and from the US from 16:00 GMT on Saturday.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had previously counseled against packaging the phones in luggage.

Samsung permanently discontinued Galaxy Note 7 creation this week.

“We are taking this additional measure because even one fire episode in-flight poses a high risk of severe personal injury and gets many lives in danger.”

Samsung recalled around 2.5 million phones in September after criticisms of bursting batteries.

While it afterwards insisted that all replaced apparatus were not dangerous, there were reports that those telephones were catching fire too.

The business subsequently said it would discontinue Galaxy Note 7 creation.

“The fire hazard with the original Note 7 and with the replacement Note 7 is simply too great for anyone to risk it and not respond to this official recall,” said US Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Elliot Kaye.

“I would like to remind consumers once again to take advantage of the remedies offered, including a full refund. It’s the right thing to do and the safest thing to do.”
