On August 19, South Korean mobile manufacturer Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in its home country South Korea and has sold 400,000 units since then. But reportedly, the tech giant has stopped the deliveries of the same to the country's three major carriers - SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus.
Although the reason behind this is still unclear, there are rumours that there are several incidents wherein the Galaxy Note 7 is exploding during charging - 5 people have made this claim over the last week. Photos of the accidents too have been posted on Internet forums.
A Samsung official only mentioned that the company is checking if deliveries have indeed stopped. On the other hand, a spokesperson from one of the local carriers did confirm that the deliveries of the Galaxy Note 7 have been halted but the reason cited behind this is due to a 'technical snag'.
