Samsung delays Galaxy Note 7 shipments due to battery explosion claims

Samsung announced on Wednesday (August 31, 2016) that it will delay the shipments of its latest smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7, for additional quality tests.

The South Korean company did not reveal additional details on its decision but a report from Korea Herald said that there have been scattered instances of exploding Galaxy Note 7 batteries.

It’s unclear how long the delay will last but if it’s for a long period, it would surely hurt the marketability of the positively-reviewed smartphone.
