(WSJ) In a blow to its recent recovery momentum, Samsung Electronics Co. launched a voluntary global recall of its latest smartphone due to a potentially dangerous battery flaw in a few devices.

The company said it had halted sales of its Galaxy Note 7 phone after receiving reports from customers of batteries exploding during charging.

“It has been confirmed that it was a battery cell problem,” Koh Dong-jin, the head of Samsung’s handset division, said.

Samsung said it had shipped 2.5 million units of the Galaxy Note 7 since its launch on Aug. 19. Mr. Koh declined to comment on the estimated cost for the exchange program, but said that the amount is so big “it breaks my heart.”

What happened to Sandra Bland?

That’s the question that’s floating around Waller County this week.

This is after Bland was arrested Friday and placed in the Waller County jail.

Monday she was found hanging in her jail cell according to friends.

Sources in the community say they spoke with Bland Saturday and she had a $5,000 bond for assaulting a police officer. We’re told she was originally pulled over for failing to signal by a State Trooper.


Some in the racially charged community say they now suspect foul play. One friend tells the Factor the 28 year old just got a new job and had everything to live for.

Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis confirms the Texas Rangers have been brought in to conduct the investigation.

A representative at the Sheriff’s office says they will soon release a press release on the issue.

In the meantime, some friends in the community say they plan to protest to the sheriff’s office until they get answers and justice.

I had a chance to speak with Bland’s sister who said the family is still in Chicago and they won’t likely get to Texas until Friday.

As expected the sister says the family I still trying to digest all of the facts before they make their next move!
