China’s Galaxy Note 7 is still on sale because Samsung is using a different battery supplier there


Poor Samsung. The company’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in China this week was sure to be capped off with a period of celebration, but they’ve had to deal with a nasty recall instead.

Even still, the phones are hitting store shelves over there, and Samsung isn’t halting sales like they have had to do in North America, South Korea, and several European countries. Why not?

Well, Samsung is using a different battery supplier for the Chinese variants. Presumably, the company has already looked into the issue plaguing all other models of the Galaxy Note 7 and determined that there’s no reason to pull those from the market.

Those not lucky enough to live in the region, however, will now either have to wait to buy the device, or return their previously-purchased devices for an exchange (if they so choose). You can read up on the forthcoming actions right here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
