Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 phone has received many positive reviews from the day it was officially launched. This smartphone has been provided with some of the best features available and is really powerful. The Galaxy Note 7 phone has been given a beautiful and stylish look. However, Samsung is still busy in promoting its flagship handset but last week there was a report that this phone has exploded while was being charged.

Now, it seems that the history is repeating itself and a new report seems to be revolving online. But before we get carried away, one key consideration should be made. Last week, the incident that happened with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phone was potentially attributable to a third-party micro USB to USB Type-C converter. Thus, the incident is attributed not to the sole use of official Samsung products but unofficial equipment might have proved to be culprit once again.

The report from BusinessKorea says that the friend of this exploded Note 7 phone’s owner says:

“There was another explosion of the Galaxy Note 7. It was my friend’s phone. A Samsung employee checked the site and he is currently in talks over the compensation with Samsung. You should use its original charger just in case and leave the phone far away from where you are while charging.”

This statement does indicate that charging equipment not manufactured by Samsung might have caused this Galaxy Note 7 phone to burst into flames. With this, we can say that Samsung should not plan such huge launch, particularly with this phone at the times when it is poised to break sales records. The original story revealing this new incident was shared on the Korean social media portal Kakao, and is now deleted. Currently, it seems that the device in question is set for tests to the Korean giant to findout what has actually caused it to catch fire.
