Alleged “Safe” Galaxy Note 7 unit explodes in an aircraft
If we should come on here to give you news of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding in the hands of another user now, you would probably be one of the people that would blame them for not having turned in their own unit for replacement when the South Korean OEM has already recalled the 2.5 million units of the device that they have sold already.
That is however not the case as one of the Note 7 units that were just rolled out and deemed as safe could have been the culprit behind an explosion on an aircraft in Louisville, Kentucky.
The device exploded on the plane and the owner quickly threw it to the floor, causing some damages on the carpet of the aircraft. When asked, he claimed that this is one of the replace units that have just been released by the South Korean OEM and also provided the product packaging to prove this.
While the issue is yet to be investigated, keep in mind that the packaging might be from another safe unit of the device instead and not for this one. Samsung would also be hoping that this is the case because with where their reputation is at currently, they cannot afford any more issues.
