Chinese Galaxy Note 7 sales begin because the batteries are fine there

35 batteries out of millions of Galaxy Note 7 devices is all it takes for Samsung to hit the recall button. Whether you think it’s a proper response can be debated, but one place where a global recall isn’t even in the question is in China. Sales have started in the country and people are laying hands on units as we speak.

In a statement, Samsung China reiterated that the company has multiple battery suppliers and said that Chinese consumers should not worry. Samsung has an effort to source parts from China for its Chinese products.

We don’t know the source mix that Samsung uses, but iFixit tore down one US Note 7 unit and found that Samsung itself had made the battery — in China. The company is working with retail partners on how refunds and exchanges will work out.
