Samsung Electronics has set up an agency that will oversee its mobile phone business.
The move comes after the company had previously promised to give away the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones, among other devices.
Samsung Electronics, founded in 1972, has more than 1,400 mobile phone brands.
The Korean conglomerate is not currently selling its mobile phones, but will offer them for sale as long as they’re still in stock.
The company will continue to offer the devices to users in South Korea.
The move comes as Samsung Electronics was criticized by regulators earlier this month for failing to provide adequate warnings about the risks of radiation and its use of harmful technologies, including its use in the production of nuclear power plants.
A recent audit by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) noted that the company was not sufficiently upfront about the potential risks posed by its use.
The company also failed to provide its customers with adequate information about the extent of its exposure to nuclear accidents.
