Samsung's new firmware limits Note 7 battery to 60%

Note 7 firmware starts to roll out, will limit Samsung's explosive smartphone battery to 60%

Just a few minutes ago, my Galaxy Note 7 vibrated and sounded out with a new notification telling me that they're pushing out a new firmware update for the Note 7, with a 60% battery charge limit.


The new 60% limit will come into play soon, and once it appears on the Galaxy Note 7 it will automatically download it, and install. Once the update is complete, Samsung will push another message to Note 7 owners, stating that the phone should be turned off, and returned to the store.
