New Samsung S7 Worldwide Unveiling

We all know the saga of the Samsung Galaxy S7. I was on a flight in October, when the flight attendant made a lengthy announcement about the protocol for users of the ill fated device. As we know they were recalled for incidents of the batteries igniting. This news is funny…but, it’s not. The factory that makes the batteries recently caught fire. Bloomberg reports, the Samsung Electronics plant in Tianjin, China had a fire break out this morning (Feb. 9). SDI has reportedly invested $129 billion in safety since the battery fiasco, and the plant will likely supply batteries for the Galaxy S8. By the way, the fire started in the trash. I’m an iphone user, not likely to switch soon.
