In a desperate bid to keep the users away from exchanging their faulty Note 7 with the new ones, Samsung announced that it will release a software update on September 20 which will limit the phone’s charging capacity to 60%.
According to Samsung spokesman, limiting the charging capacity will reduce the heat and thus reduce the chances of explosion. But at the same time, it also means that the battery life of the phone will be reduced.
Samsung has begun the global recall of the faulty Note 7 devices, which can explode during charging. Samsung also offered the users, an interim phone as a replacement until the new Note 7 arrived, but majority of users have stayed with the faulty phones and decided to wait from the new Note 7 as it is cumbersome to shift between devices frequently.
