Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explodes in China  Samsung Galaxy Note 7's catching fire has led to the company globally recalling around 2.5 million of the phones and replacing them with new, safe units.

The Brand could have another problem on its hands though, as a Chinese man says a brand new Note 7 exploded on him, Bloomberg reports.

Samsung had previously said Chinese models of the phone were safe as they use a different battery than Note 7s sold in the rest of the world.

They acknowledged confirmed reports of problems with 92 smartphones.

The root cause of the problem was detected to be batteries made by Samsung’s SDI components.

 

However, in China, Samsung started selling Galaxy Note 7s with batteries made by Amperex Technology Ltd (ATL) instead of problematic batteries from SDI.

Bloomberg reports Samsung representative visited Hui but he declined to return the device.
“We are currently contacting the customer and will conduct a thorough examination of the device in question once we receive it,” Samsung has confirmed in an email statement to Bloomberg.

Earlier, a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had exploded in China and the cause was found to be external heat.

CNN has acquired pictures of exploded Galaxy Note 7 and receipt of purchase.

Samsung has been doing said recalls of the phone for almost a month now, and says it has recovered more than 60 percent of the devices in the US and South Korea. In Europe, the company says the number of recalled devices is 57 percent.
