Samsung has seen great success with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones launched in the first half of 2016. Even the Galaxy Note 7 launched in the second half was rated as a good device ion the initial device, but later serial explosions made the company to recall all the sold devices. It even damaged the company’s brand as the batteries that are used in the Galaxy Note 7 also came from the Samsung SDI which is a part of the Samsung Electronics. At that time, we have also seen few Apple iPhone explosions, however, now a video showing the latest iPhone 7 Plus catching fire is going viral on Twitter.

The exact reason for this explosion is not yet known. Apple is said to have already started investigating the case to find the reason behind this incident. Even the device is not charging at the time of this explosion. We came to know that no one is injured by this incident. While seeing the swollen battery of the device, we guess the battery to be the reason for emission of smoke. Brianna Olivas, who posted the video on Twitter also confirmed that she was using the official power adapter and the charging cable. As of now, the device is handed over to Apple, and she also got a replacement device in return.

Once the tests are conducted on the device, we will be getting the official information about this explosion. Earlier to this, another iPhone 7 Plus was exploded in China. That device was accidentally fallen on the ground and started emitting smoking. Unlike Galaxy Note 7, these are very rear cases and other users of the iPhone 7 Plus can use without hesitation. However, we recommended not to use any third party chargers or cables which are not officially certified.
