Defective batteries “iPhone killer” is one of the biggest defeats of recent times. Fantastically promising Galaxy Note 7 is withdrawn from sale because of the risk of spontaneous explosion.
As estimated Hwang Min-Sung, an analyst at Samsung Securities, the cost of the withdrawal of the phone, repair and re-introducing them into circulation is about 120 billion won. Furthermore, devices made in September are devices designed to replace the defective models, which predicted sales will drop from six million to three million units, which represents a decrease in operating profit, taking into account the margins of another 300 million won in the next quarter.
In total, Samsung has to lose all the confusion even 820 million won. So almost $ 740 million .
