The Galaxy Note 7 has kind of ruined things for Samsung’s other products, including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Ever since the first battery exploded, there have been reports of other Samsung devices catching fire and emitting a nasty smoke supposedly due to faulty batteries.
Due to this, there was some concern surrounding Samsung’s current flagship offerings and whether there were more issues that could arise in the future. Due to this, Samsung felt the need to release a statement regarding the battery in these devices.
Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident.
It is curious that there is concern surrounding batteries for devices that were released earlier this year. However, Samsung has apparently received enough heat from the Note 7 debacle that the company felt a statement was warranted.
It’s important to note, however, that through its own internal investigations the company has found 0 confirmed cases of faulty batteries from the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. So, if you are looking to pick one up this holiday season, you won’t have to worry about any shenanigans taking place.
