Samsung is aware of the issue and is replacing the units affected with the problem on a case-by-case basis, users have tried different methods to charge the phone, using different cables and charging bricks to bring the phone to life again but nothing seems to work.
The good thing though is that the South Korean giant has admitted that there is an issue and that it will basically provide warranty replacements.
Nearly a year ago, Samsung was left with no option else to recall Galaxy Note 7, after reports from many users that its battery explodes.

And in Montgomery County, Maryland, lawmakers rushed to pass legislation that would allow prepayment. In Tisbury, tax collector Jon Snyser said the phones have been ringing for two straight weeks.
Members of Samsung's official forums and other sources report that their Note 8s became unresponsive after they used them until they ran out of power.
The issue seems to come after the phone battery is fully drained to 0% and shuts down. Even after many attempts, the users weren't successful. We don't have an exact figure yet regarding the number of Galaxy Note 8 devices having this issue. "This particular problem with the Note 8 not turning on is definitely something that we want to get addressed immediately", SamsungMel concluded. We recently heard that Samsung may show off its upcoming flagship smartphones at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, so we may not have long to wait to learn some key details about the handsets.
Or at least Samsung will be hoping it's a blip - right now the manufacturer hasn't said whether or not this is a recognized fault, or whether the problem lies with the hardware or the software of the Note 8. The company is yet to make an announcement regarding the same.
