Samsung to render Galaxy Note 7 phones useless

It appears Samsung is going with the nuclear option as it plans to “brick” remaining Galaxy Note Seven smartphones that were not turned in during this year’s recall.

The company will send out an update that will stop the phones from being able to charge, rendering them useless.

The phone had been banned from flights as a safety precaution due to batteries overheating and catching fire.
