Samsung issued an official statement on its website reassuring customers that there’s been no evidence of “internal battery failure” among the ten million Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge units currently being used by consumers in the US.
So all you Samsung users out there and breathe easy because your cellphone won’t kill you anymore because Samsung says so..
The firm then went on to confirm that there have been a number of instances where handsets have caught fire, but only after suffering sever external damage, which — presumably — caused the battery to swell to such a size that outgrew its shell and exploded.
Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident.
