Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Issue[RUMOR]: Battery Is Exploding? Samsung Sued Because Of Alleged S7 Edge Explosion?

Close

Samsung is quick to act with regards to the batteries of their "Galaxy Note 7" phablet allegedly exploding, and prompted the FAA advisory to have the devices recalled.

There has also been reports about the "Galaxy S7 Edge" encountering the same issue, which led to a lawsuit against Samsung.

The problem regarding overheating and exploding batteries is growing since the Korean smartphone giant, "Samsung" has announced their exchange program for their latest phablet, the "Samsung Galaxy Note 7." With just over a week, Samsung's quick fix may have an ill-favored effect on the Android Market, and the smartphone landscape in general.

Samsung's President of Mobile Communications Business, DJ Koh is currently on record as placing their customers' safety as a top priority, while also urging them to cease using their Galaxy Note 7 phablets and exchange them as soon as they can, Forbes reported.

Simply put, Samsung is asking customers to stop using their Galaxy Note 7 phablets, immediately. Koh's statement is quite clear that they don't want their customers to take their chances, and advise customers to contact their retailer and wait for the exchange program details.

Last week, a report by Android Headlines stated that there has also been a similar battery incident for Samsung's latest smartphone offering, the "Galaxy S7 Edge which resulted in Samsung being sued for product liability." The Superior Court of New Jersey is handling a case wherein a Galaxy S7 Edge owner suffered substantial injuries comprised of second and third degree burns from the exploding smartphone. 

The smartphone had been purchased at a "Best Buy" store in the state of California on March 11, while the incident happened on the 30th of May. The owner, Daniel Ramirez is said to have been at work, while his smartphone is inside his front right trouser pocket when it exploded and caught fire.
