Samsung releases statement saying Galaxy S7 family is safe


Samsung had a difficult 2016 with the Galaxy Note7 battery exploding fiasco. Now the company has released a statement after reports of Galaxy S7 exploding have surfaced.

Samsung said in a statement,

Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident.

In September, a user claimed that he had his S7 Edge explode in his pants pocket while he was at work. This has resulted in second and third degree burns for the affected.
