“Until a replacement device is provided, Samsung asks all customers with a Galaxy Note 7 smartphone to power down your device and return it to its place of purchase at your earliest opportunity.”

Earlier Today, aviation authorities in UAE banned the use of devices on Emirates and Etihad airlines due to the risk of exploding.

Similar ban has already been put in Singapore Airlines, Virgin Australia, Qantas. The US Federal Aviation Administration also advised against packing the phone.

US TV channel Fox 10 reported claims that a faulty Galaxy Note 7 had set fire to a family’s Jeep.
