Samsung has halted the production of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones and advised customers all over the world to stop using the phone.
The company had failed to correct a problem that was causing the devices to burst into flames.
The tech firm had tried to switch the batteries suppliers and updating the device software.
But the replacements had also caught fire after they were issued.
Samsung on Tuesday said it is taken the phone off the market, promising customers they would be able to exchange the phone for other devices.
