There are other Samsung phones exploding aside from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. A recent report has surfaced which reveals that a couple of Galaxy S7 Edge phones have exploded while they were being charged. The South Korean tech giant recently gave a statement on the incident.

“We are unable to comment on this specific incident until we obtain and thoroughly examine the phone. Customer safety remains our highest priority and we want to work with any customer who has experienced an issue with a Samsung product in order to investigate the matter and support them.” The Company said, as reported by Yahoo.

Recently, a customer brought in a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone to an unidentified worker in one of the big US mobile networks. The phone was severely heat-damaged and had supposedly exploded, according to PhoneArena.

The owner of the reported phone left it for charging during the night when the incident took place. The same owner had recently returned his Galaxy Note 7, when the product was recalled by Samsung.

There seems to be many problems surfacing surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. A man from Ohio recently sued the South Korean tech giant claiming that his phone was overheating. This left him with second and third degree burns, as reported by Mail Online.

It is still unknown if Samsung will take a decision on the Galaxy S7 recall. However, if recent incidents become the norm within the next few weeks, we may have a similar situation to that of Note 7.
