Things are really not looking good for Samsung at all as a brand new serious issue has just surfaced in the form of a lawsuit for something that was previously unknown and unheard of. Daniel Ramirez is a construction worker who has filed a lawsuit against the South Korean electronics giant for allegedly selling defective and explosive Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones. He stated that the incident occurred in Ohio, where he was working in a bookstore and the S7 Edge was in his pant pocket. The phone wasn't being charged or even used while it caught fire and caused Daniel to receive second and third degree burns. He tried to grab the smoking smartphone and throw it out of his pocket, which burned his right hand as well. This was followed by the S7 Edge proceeding to literally explode in his pocket causing horrible injuries.


Now, this is an incident that reportedly occurred on May 30, which is more than three months before the Note 7 was even officially revealed. In light of the recently occuring battery related fires originating from the Note 7 and its worldwide recall by the manufacturer, ClassAction.com has taken it upon themselves to sue the OEM over this tragic incident. They want a worldwide recall for the S7 Edge, just like Samsung did with the Note 7. Not only is this the first time that we are hearing about the S7 Edge catching fire and exploding, but this is also the only time that such an unfortunate accident seems to have happened while the phone was not even being charged. We will have to wait and see what Samsung has to say about this.

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!

Amihai Neiderman from Equus Software has revealed some very interesting and worrying results about Samsung's propriety OS Tizen. If his findings are true then Tizen has 40 zero-day vulnerabilities, which translates to the OS becoming a hacker's dream. He went on to state that Tizen's security protocols seem like the work of someone who has no grasp over the concept of cyber security at all and added that it is "the worst he'd ever seen."


If this is true then any device currently running on Tizen can be remote hacked by a cyber criminal sitting half-way across the world. This leaves millions of smart TVs, smart watches, smartphones and other Samsung devices running on the OS vulnerable to cyber attacks, thereby causing a mass breach of security across the world. Neiderman adds that Samsung's Bada OS, which the company had discarded long ago, was actually more secure than Tizen, since the old codes from Bada being used by Tizen are still secure. The problem has clearly originated in the last two years since all the vulnerable coding were reportedly done during that period of time. Will Samsung be able to patch this up with security updates? A response from Samsung has not yet been received.

If you are eager to see the Galaxy Note 7 being re-launched then we have good news for you. New images of the Galaxy Note 7 "refurbished edition" has been leaked online. However, the sad news is that in order to make it a safer and less explosive device, Samsung has not only changed the battery line-up, but the batteries themselves as well. While that should be good news, it really isn't because the refurbished Note 7 will now reportedly, sport a smaller 3,200mAh cell instead of the original's 3,500mAh cell.



As the pictures came in from a Vietnamese fan site, it seems that the rumors about the Note 7 being introduced in the country may not be just a rumor after all. Rumor also had it that India would also be getting the refurbished Note 7, but a Samsung employee has mentioned that it won't. Even if it is re-introduced in certain nations, it may not actually go on sale, but could only be available as a rental phone. We will have to wait to find out more. In the meanwhile, check out the images to see all that they reveal.

Patent drawing for a Samsung device with a 3-sided flexible display go as far back as April but now a parts supplier for Samsung reports that the unique screen has entered production.

This sounds like a good time to start making these if they'll end up on the Galaxy Note 4, which is to be unveiled in a month. However, the screen is reportedly built on a plastic substrate that's difficult to work with and only limited numbers will be available at first.

And the new Galaxy Note will be anything but a low-volume device. There were rumors that the Note 4 will be available in two versions one with a conventional flat screen and one with either a curved screen or a three-sided screen.
