Looks like Samsung's rush into fixing the rushed battery production problem that lead to its embarrassing total recall is about to get even more embarrassing: as the are are already reports that the new Galaxy Note 7 devices are still catching fire.
With the recall operation under way, there were some users reporting their new Note 7 were still overheating to uncomfortable levels, something that Samsung said was unrelated to the original problem and that would be fixed via a software update. Now, things are heating up - literally - as some of these new units are catching fire just like the original ones.
Will this lead to a new massive recall of the units sent to replace the recalled units? It that's the case Samsung's about to become a very mocked up company... and no one will ever look at a new Samsung launch without worrying about its potential "explosive" properties.
