A second case of Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung allegedly exploding while charging has been reported in less than a week. A user on Kakao Story, the most popular social media service in South Korea, who was using the Note 7, posted images of the burnt device, which he claimed exploded while it was charging.
"There was another explosion of the Galaxy Note 7. It was my friend's phone. A Samsung employee checked the site and he is currently in talks over the compensation with Samsung. You should use its original charger just in case and leave the phone far away from where you are while charging," read the post.
However, the post on Kakao Story has reportedly been deleted. The images have, however, been saved on the internet showing a severely damaged Galaxy Note 7.
Some users who saw the post claim the photo looked very similar to the Galaxy Note 7 that was reported to have burnt in the first incident. However, others differed saying the models were not the same.
The first post by a user that came out on 24 August had said, "My boyfriend's Galaxy Note 7 exploded while charging at night. I woke up by the bang and the smell of smoke." Samsung Electronics is still verifying the facts and has not issued any statement so far.
Of late, companies have been recommending that users charge their handsets only with the official charger so as to avoid damage.
