Samsung May Limit Your Note 7’s Battery With an Update If You Don’t Replace It

If you own a Note 7, you should trade it without delay. Samsung has recalled the product after some phones exploded due to a short circuit in the battery . However, if that’s not enough to entice you to transfer it, Samsung may drain your battery.

According to the Associated Press, Samsung issued a statement in a South Korean newspaper warning users in that country that their battery life would be limited to 60% unless they donate their phones to buy new, non-explosive phones. The idea is that users who refuse to trade their phones for updated, more secure models will be annoyed by this.

Samsung has not yet confirmed whether it plans to roll out this update in other parts of the world. Quite possibly not. In order to release such a software update, Samsung will have to contact the carriers, which can take a long time. However, you shouldn’t wait and find out if you have a Note 7 right now. Just go to the Samsung exchange program site here and buy your phone.
