FAA lifts airline notification on Galaxy Note7

Samsung;

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s decision today to remove the requirement for the airlines to make specific pre-boarding notification reflects the exceptionally high rates of participation in the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program.

By leveraging our digital technology to target each device, we’ve had over 96 percent of Galaxy Note7 phones returned to date.

Together with our wireless carriers, we have taken aggressive action to limit the remaining phones’ ability to work as mobile devices, further enhancing participation in the recall. We thank the Department of Transportation, airlines, airports, our partners and Note7 owners for their patience and support during this time.

Despite being unintentionally announced a few days before its official reveal, ASUS’ Zenfone AR still took us by surprise. Not because of its project Tango component (we already knew about that) but because of its absolutely mind blowing amount of RAM. Stuffed with 8GB of RAM, it’s currently the only smartphone in the world that has that much RAM inside of it.
