The first series of Galaxy Note 7 units arrived with defective batteries and Samsung had to recall millions of units. The company completely ditched batteries from its own SDI division, but it looks like the problem is still present and the new, safe Galaxy Note 7 could still explode.
This was confirmed by the latest fire incident involving a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 unit that was deemed to be safe. According to new reports, Samsung could announce the second recall if the new units prove to be unsafe.
Since users of the new Galaxy Note 7 are afraid of the possible incident, Sprint is now allowing replacement Galaxy Note 7 users to trade in their unit for any other device.
“If a Sprint customer with a replacement Note 7 has any concerns regarding their device, we will exchange it for any other device at any Sprint retail store during the investigation window.”-Sprint representative
