Behold, the next chapter in the unending Galaxy Note 7 exploding phone saga. According to a new report from Reuters, Samsung will pay suppliers who already made components of the Galaxy Note 7 for unused parts. The company will also “consider giving them orders for other models to cushion the blow”. Samsung also plans to compensate suppliers for any unused Galaxy Note 7 raw materials.
Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 earlier this month after many, many reports of explosions. Since then, the device has been completely killed off from production by Samsung itself and explicitly prohibited from airplanes, with the whole ordeal costing the company billions of dollars. [Reuters]
