Galaxy Note 7 units still out in Europe to receive another battery-capping update
The European arm of Samsung has made it known that part of their plans for this next week is to rollout an update to the units of the Note 7 that are still in the affected region and from this update, the device would be capped in terms of its ability to charge high once more.
The first update of this kind that was rolled out globally ensured that the device could not leave a limit of 60% that it was limited to. Now, the new update would be such that the device would not be able to pass the 30% mark when charging and imagine using such a smartphone that you would need to plug every now and then.
They are also planning to roll out an update of such to the US but the major difference here is that the one that would be going stateside would totally limit the charging abilities of the device while that for the UK would still keep users in the use of their device. Currently, there is no word on whether or not the same fate would befall the units in Europe but as things are going now, it is just a matter of time.
