It looks like Samsung is determined to gather all the Galaxy Note 7 units it sold in various regions by the end of the year.
The South Korean company announced earlier today that Galaxy Note 7 phones in the United States will receive a new update starting December 19, which will prevent its battery from charging.
In addition, all Galaxy Note 7 in the U.S. will lose their ability to connect to any mobile networks in the country. However, Verizon announced that it will not push the update citing emergency contact concerns.
Samsung has taken similar measures in Australia and Canada, but for some reason European customers have been treated softer.
