Phone Arena reports explosion of an exchanged Galaxy S7 Edge handset

In a recently released report, mobile phone site Phone Arena has revealed that an exchanged Samsung Galaxy S7 handset of an employee of one of the four leading US wireless carriers -- AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile -- has exploded.

According to the report, the owner of the exploded Galaxy S7 handset -- the Galaxy S7 Edge model, to be specific -- had got the handset barely two weeks back, after exchanging a potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7, which has been discontinued by Samsung.

Reporting the explosion of the Galaxy S7 Edge handset, Phone Arena – which has been briefed on the incident – said that the handset’s owner revealed that while the Galaxy Note 7 had not exploded, the Galaxy S7 Edge received in exchange for the handset exploded after normal use. The nature of the explosion of Galaxy S7 Edge is still unknown.

The Galaxy S7 Edge owner’s claim that the handset had exploded will evidently come as a surprise because the device has been available for the past few months and has not been widely panned as being potentially explosive.

Nonetheless, in the last couple of months, some of the owners of Galaxy S7 handsets have apparently complained about the device getting overheated and catching fire.
