South Korean tech giant Samsung has permanently ceased production of its high-end Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after reports of devices it had deemed safe catching fire.

The firm had already reduced Galaxy Note 7 production volumes.

Owners are expected to be able to return the phones for a refund or an exchange for a different Samsung phone.

The firm had earlier said it would stop sales of the phone.

However, South Korea's finance minister had warned that the country's exports would be hurt if the phone model was scrapped.

In September, Samsung recalled around 2.5 million phones after complaints of exploding batteries.

On Tuesday, the company said it would stop Galaxy Note 7 production.
