Following its release back in August, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 did not last a month on shelves before being recalled for what has now turned out to be the phone’s end story.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets started catching fire even before some regions’ shipping date were confirmed. Since then, the phone has been discontinued and the company has yet to come public with an explanation of what really happened.
When this incident happened, some owners of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge started getting worried on the account that the same problem could face the flagships. While there have been separate cases where reported Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets have caught fire in bizarre cases like the Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean tech giant is still adamant that there is nothing wrong with the two handsets.
This is not the first time Samsung is trying to make it clear that the issue facing the Galaxy Note 7 has nothing to do with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. However, the latest move seems to be a reiteration of the same message following the recent incident in Canada where a mechanic was injured thanks to an exploding Galaxy S7 – something the company says might have been caused by “severe external damage.”
If it were indeed true that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 woes are following the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung would be in huge trouble. This is true after it was reported that the company lost about $5 billion towards expenses for the recall and discontinuation of the Note 7. While the company notes that there are over 10 million units of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in the U.S., the world has more – something that would be dealt a huge blow if the few S7 fire incidences get vast.
