New York, October 25: Adding a yet another twist to the brawl involving Samsung Note 7 explosions, a US resident have reportedly claimed that his Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge exploded while charging overnight using the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) charger.
The customer claimed that he got the phone as a replacement 2 weeks ago. “The victim suffered second and third degree burns and had to go through painful skin grafts,” as per the report.
3 other US customers from different states have also complained about the fire-prone Note 7 devices. They may take up a class-action lawsuit against Samsung for fraud and breach of warranty and good faith.
Just on Monday as much as 527 Galaxy Note 7 owners in South Korea filed a class-action lawsuit against Samsung Electronics for causing inconvenience after the discontinuation of the device.
According to the Harvest Law Office, the case is filed with the Seoul Central District Court, seeking $ 440 compensation to each victim.
Earlier this month, Samsung has permanently halted sales and production of the fire-prone Note 7 phones. This is just two months after the device was launched.
