In the wake of Galaxy Note 7 recall, an employee from one of the largest carriers in the US is claiming that company’s customer has experienced an exploding Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge incident. But that employee requested to remain anonymous. Here are the understandable details.
The customer who has is in question experienced an exploding S7 Edge handset while it was on charge using Samsung’s official charger. This just happened when the customer has just owned S7 Edge two weeks earlier after trading in for a recalled Galaxy Note 7.
In fact it seems that Samsung will want to do its own investigation on this latest Galaxy S7 Edge to explode, and what to make point is that this would be the first model range to suffer from this type of issue. Past month we already heard about another Galaxy S7 Edge exploding, this time in the trouser pocket of an individual working a construction job.
Incident resulted in the unfortunate device owner suffering from third degree burns and in particular having go through extremely painful skin graft procedures of which the owner is in the process of taking legal action against South Korean company.
About the other exploding S7 Edge was actually placed on charge overnight using the original supplied Samsung charger, which also ended up in disaster with the hardware catching fire while taking on power. Apple on the other hand also having to deal with an exploding iPhone 7 incident recently. What was the cause is unknown at the moment.
Remember to make note is that there is, and always will be, a very small number of devices that ship with lithium-ion batteries which will ultimately ending up meeting such fate. The failure rate of that particular technology means that approximately one in every ten million devices sold using lithium-ion batteries will catch fire of face this issue.
Samsung although being aware of over 100 such cases of the Note 7 range in the United States alone, they will definite want to take a close look into this as well.
