Samsung Galaxy Note 4 facing battery recall due to counterfeit batteries

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 facing battery recall due to counterfeit batteries

If there was any doubt about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8's features or specs, a leak posted to GFXBench on Tuesday of the benchmark test run appears to provide significant confirmation.

It was shortly after the device's launch that Samsung's Galaxy Note7 was recalled due to issues with the battery exploding.

Apparently, phones refurbished via FedEx Supply Chain and sent out via U.S. carrier AT&T's insurance program, were refitted with counterfeit batteries.

One confusing detail for the Antutu result is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 only managed to score 179,000, a significantly lower number as compared to the S8 score of 205,000 earlier this year.

Dana White Confirms Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee For Interim Lightweight Title
White didn't specify whether the Ferguson vs Lee bout will headline UFC 216, but the card is starting to shape up either way. Lee was passed over for a spot on The Ultimate Fighter as a coach, but it is possible this was the UFC's plan all along.

The commission further says, "Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled battery and power down their smartphone". FedEx and Samsung have determined that some of the recalled batteries are counterfeit and show anomalies that can lead the batteries to overheat.

FedEx Supply Chain is conducting this recall of non-genuine Samsung batteries as some of them are counterfeit. The fact that the Note 4 has a user-replaceable battery should help the whole thing go a bit more smoothly, as well. You could instead pop in another Note 4 battery and use that while you wait for your package from FedEx Supply Chain. There's no word on FedEx Supply Chain came to obtain these counterfeit batteries, but it clearly wasn't intentional.

Before you panic, it is important to know that only one of these batteries has overheated. Apparently, FedEx was handling phones for AT&T's insurance program.

FedEx Supply Chain will be sending affected consumers a new battery and shipping materials so that they can send back the faulty one. Luckily, the Galaxy Note 4 features a removable battery, so impacted owners will not need to send in their phones. When is the last time you saw a Galaxy Note 4 in the wild?
