    I honestly think the capping at 60% was a rumor. I mean think about it... the issue is linked to charging, why would you do something to make people charge it more often?

    The issue isn't charging, it's overcharging bad cells. So if the phone will only charge to 100% and that is actually 60%, there will never be any overcharge if there is a bad cell in the battery.

    Either way, doesn't seem to be the case with this update. Also nothing has been said that that was happening by Samsung.

    Published in two major South Korean news papers. Nothing was said that it would be rolling out to US consumers.

    Battery charging limit on unsafe Galaxy Note 7 units can be increased to 80%
