Some more bad news for the Galaxy Note line: just over 10,000 batteries for the Galaxy Note 4 are being recalled for risk of overheating that could lead to burns or fires.
This recall is a lot different than last year’s Note 7 fiasco. While that one affected every single phone and happened because of a design flaw, this one is far more limited and doesn’t even seem to be Samsung’s fault.
Only phones refurbished through AT&T’s insurance program and handled by FedEx Supply Chain are impacted by the recall. Some of the refurbished phones apparently ended up with “counterfeit” batteries that include anomalies that could make them overheat.
I am very glad to see them putting customer safety first but this does still not look good for the company after the recall issues on Note 7.
