Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 still has to reach many markets, but it looks like the first serious issues have begun to surface online already. Fortunately, this looks like an isolated incident, but remains something worth being mentioned. After all, we do not hear too often about smartphones or phablets blowing up, especially top-of-the-line ones.

A set of images that has just been spotted on Baidu by Phone Arena shows a blown up Galaxy Note 7 that has been turned to charcoal as a result. Unfortunately, it looks like there is no chance to repair the damage caused by this incident. Fortunately, this seems to have been caused by a cable converter with problems. The only details available at this time mention that the battery blew up while the phablet was being charged using a micro USB to Type-C converter for the cable.

The whole deal is not clear since it is possible that the owner of the blown up Galaxy Note 7 did not use a Samsung wall charger. Let us hope that this remains an isolated incident caused by third-party hardware and not a problem of the handset itself.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
