Samsung has just made it official that the exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are a real problem which according to their research and reports, may happen to one in every 42,000 units. Samsung Mobiles president Koh also stated that they have so far found 35 incidents around the world in which the Note 7 had shown signs of excessive heating, catching fire or even exploding while being charged. In light of these incidents, the smartphone will be recalled all around the world as a safety measure and as expected, sales have stopped for now as well.
Samsung hopes to replace all the Note 7 smartphones to their customers in roughly two week's time. The battery related problem will perhaps be solved by the South Korean giant over time, but a massive damage has already been done. The exploding smartphones have not only put a blemish on an otherwise perfect series of Note devices, but the bad reputation will definitely affect the sales of Samsung smartphones in general, especially when Apple is about to unveil the iPhone 7 this month.
