Samsung pushes update which limits battery charge Note 7 to European owners




Samsung begins on October 31 with the sending of an over-the-air -update to European users of the Note 7 that have not responded to the recall. After installing the update, the battery can be recharged up to sixty percent.

The Samsung ota would encourage holders of the Note 7 to return their device. Two thirds of would be returned handsets sold in Europe, reports CNET according to a press release from Samsung. How many copies are still in circulation, is not known.

However, if users who consciously choose to keep the Note 7 will install the update, is the question. Samsung also states that the use of the device after the update is still not safe, though there are no cases of exploding batteries reported in units that are equipped with the limit on the battery charge.

Mid-September sent Samsung a similar update in South Korea and a week later in Australia, then it was not known that the smartphone would be removed in its entirety from the market. The ota was to serve as a temporary solution, allowing users to use their device in anticipation of an exchange offer
