Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Exploding Battery Reports Cause Delay in Shipment

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was considered to be one of the best devices available when it was launched. Many of us still think it is the flagship device of the year, but unfortunately, everyone needs to admit that not even this amazing smartphone can be called perfect. In the past few days, the company received reports concerning the explosion of the batteries of several handsets. This is probably why, according to Reuters, the tech giant announced that they will delay shipment of the device to South Korea. Given the fact that the majority of reports came from this area, it’s safe to assume that there were problems caused by something other than the batteries themselves. If all of them were faulty, we would have heard a lot more about the subject.

According to the statement given to Reuters, Samsung is halting the shipments for the moment, in order to conduct additional tests of the device. It’s not a¬†novelty that the South Korean tech giant takes things extremely seriously when it comes to issues as severe as exploding batteries. The company always tried to address similar issues as quickly as they could in the past, and it seems that they don’t treat things easily this time around either.

Unfortunately, the timing is not the best, and Samsung probably knows it. Apple’s iPhone 7 is just around the corner, so if the South Korean company wants to keep their leading position in the smartphone market, they really need to step up and address the matter quickly and efficiently. It’s true that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a truly amazing piece of technology, with a lot of power and interesting features hidden under its hood, but it might not be enough if the devices’ batteries continue to explode. It’s also possible that there is nothing wrong with the handsets themselves, given the fact that the reports come from the same area. It’s highly likely that

It’s also possible that there is nothing wrong with the handsets themselves, given the fact that the reports come from the same area. It’s highly likely that the cause of the explosions is the use of third-party USB Type-C cables. However, the issue must be addressed, and it definitely needs to be fixed if Samsung wants to improve or at least maintain their sales this year.
