A major issue with a handful of new Samsung phones.

Samsung has officially announced that they're recalling all Galaxy Note 7 phones worldwide due to the phone's problematic battery, which has exploded in some cases. 

The phone just released a few weeks ago, and although Samsung says only 35 Note 7 handsets have reported the issue have been found with the issue they're halting the sales as a precautionary measure. Samsung will be issuing replacements in the coming weeks for anyone who was affected. 

"Products installed with the problematic battery account for less than 0.1 percent of the entire volume sold," said the official. "The problem can be simply resolved by changing the battery, but we'll come up with convincing measures for our consumers."

This phone was supposed to rival the upcoming, much-anticipated iPhone 7, which will officially be unveiled on September 7th. And while that phone will reportedly come without a headphone jack, at least it probably won't blow up in your ear- and that's a major key.
