Samsung Galaxy Note 7 woos are not going anywhere. After multiple cases of fatal explosions, Samsung recalled millions of Galaxy Note 7. Samsung now handed over what the company calls “Safe” Galaxy Note 7s.
But according to a new report another Galaxy Note 7 exploded, but this time it is a exchanged unit with a safer battery.
The phone was sold to one customer named Hui Renjie by Chinese e-retailer JD.com. He put the phone for a overnight charge, but when he woke up the phone produced black smoke and exploded.
Hui told Bloomberg that a Samsung representative visited his house and asked for the phone. He declined and decided to expose the issue to the public as he does not trust the company to properly handle his claim.
Samsung on its part said “We are currently contacting the customer and will conduct a thorough examination of the device in question once we receive it,”
There have been four reports of Note7 battery-related fires in China. Although Samsung declined to elaborate further as to what was causing the battery defects and, thus, phones to explode, it’s believed the source is the battery supplier.
The exploding Galaxy Note 7 believe to have batteries sourced from its own battery division Samsung SDI. But, the Galaxy Note 7 phones sold in China has battery from China’s Amperex Technology Limited.
