IDC: Samsung moving out of the dark Note 7 woods

02 November 2016

After replacing numerous affected Note 7 handsets, Samsung was forced to issue a second and final recall because it emerged that the problem may not have been entirely fixed.

However, Note 7 recall doesn't appear to be harming the broader Samsung brand so far. The devices in question are the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy Note 5. However, here are a number of devices which are expected to get the Android 7.0 Nougat Update: Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 Active and Galaxy S6 edge+ along with Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Ironman edition. It included 24 Note 7 users.

"As challenging as the Note 7 recall has been for Samsung, the data in this survey indicate that most consumers are unaffected by this, which should be good news for Samsung", said Ramon T. Llamas, IDC wearables and mobile phones research manager. In fact, rumors have prophesized that Samsung's new flagship, the phablet, will be introduced in 2017.

"However, smartphone shipments remain solid due to continued stable sales of its existing flagship devices, including the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge..."

Emails show how Clinton campaign chairman apparently hacked

It is not clear if Samsung is just trying to keep things under wraps regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 after the announcement for the Korean market was revealed.

There have already been plenty of rumours surrounding Samsung's new smartphone, but this is the first time we've heard official word about the company's plans.

For now, Samsung is scrambling to find the reason for this debacle and all of the engineers' focus and energy has been shifted to find the cause of these explosions.

Samsung Electronics shares rose 1.97 percent to 1,604,000 won as of 14:18 p.m.in Seoul trading on Friday.
