Samsung will phase out the remaining Galaxy Note 7 devices in use through a forced software update that will prevent them from charging, The Korea Herald reported.
Samsung previously implemented measures in certain regions to prevent people from using their Note 7, such as preventing the device from connecting to local networks.
The company has also rolled out an update that limits the Note 7’s battery from being charged beyond a certain point. The new update is aimed at blocking people from continuing to use the device.
Samsung has rolled out replacement programmes for the device around the world, but a few enthusiasts have staunchly refused to give up their Note 7 smartphones.
