Samsung sued over exploding Galaxy S7 edge

Samsung has revealed what was causing the Galaxy Note 7′s battery to explode which forced it to issue a global recall for its latest flagship smartphone and it has reiterated that this issue is just limited to the Galaxy Note 7. However, the company is now being sued over a Galaxy S7 edge which allegedly exploded and caused third-degree burns. There are no widespread reports of a similar battery cell issue with the Galaxy S7 edge and this incident is said to have occurred on May 30 even before the Galaxy Note 7 had been officially announced.

Construction worker Daniel Ramirez says that his Galaxy S7 edge caught fire in his pocket as he was working at a bookstore in Ohio. A product liability lawsuit has now been filed against Samsung and it calls on the company to address the safety of batteries in the Galaxy S7 edge “in light of the terrible injuries caused by at least one of their phones.” The firm that filed this lawsuit on behalf of Ramirez encourages users whose Samsung smartphone caught fire to get in touch with them.
