The apology comes after a Chinese broadcaster accused Samsung of neglecting the country during its round of recalls, apologies and explanations.

Chinese broadcaster CCTV has accused Samsung of failing to inform Chinese Galaxy Note 7 phone owners over the exploding-battery recall the way it did US owners.

The accusation came after a supposedly "safe" unit blew up in that country and after Samsung had assured Chinese buyers that over 1 million of them had safe batteries.

On Samsung's Chinese site, the company has posted a note, saying essentially that the company is sorry and that the batteries in Chinese models come from a different supplier so Samsung didn't expect them to explode.

The company had already recalled 1,858 units in China.
