A “safe” Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has allegedly exploded in China

27 September, 2016 Samsung


Just as Samsung was setting up to restart the sale of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones with a new batch of safe devices, a new report from China has come in where a customer in Guangzhou is claiming that his brand new and "safe" Galaxy Note 7 exploded within a day from the date of purchase. Bloomberg reports that Hui Renjie, a 25 year old man from Guangzhou, China, got minor burns on his fingers after his Note 7 exploded. Ironically, it allegedly also burned his Apple MacBook in the process!


According to Renjie, someone from Samsung did contact him after the incident and asked to remove the device, but he declined in favour of going public with the incident. In reply to the incident regarding the exploded smartphone which was supposedly marked as safe, Samsung has issued the following reply via e-mail.


"We are currently contacting the customer and will conduct a thorough examination of the device in question once we receive it,"


It should be noted that Samsung had excluded China from the global recall of the Note 7, by citing the reason that the ones sold in China sport batteries that are different from the hazardous ones supplied by Samsung SDI. We will soon find out if this is an isolated incident, a faked one or if the Galaxy Note 7 really is still as "explosive" as before!
