Samsung hasn’t received any reports of Galaxy S8 units bursting into flames


Last updated: June 13th, 2017 at 07:55 UTC+02:00

Samsung hasn’t received a single report of a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ bursting into flames, according to The Korea Herald. For comparison, the Galaxy Note 7 had already been subject to a recall in a number of regions around the world, including the United States and South Korea, when it was on the market for the same amount of time.

It’s safe to say that Samsung’s new safety measures are paying off, and seeing as they span across its entire smartphone lineup and not just its flagship devices, all customers should be a little bit safer when using their handset, regardless of how much money it set them back.

We’re particularly impressed with the way Samsung has handled things. The Galaxy Note 7 debacle could have had a long-lasting effect on its reputation, but the introduction of several new procedures, like an 8-point battery safety check, has helped restore confidence in the firm from consumers all over the globe.

To recap, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ sport a 5.8/6.2-inch Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP selfie shooter and a 3,000/3,500mAh battery. They also ship running Android 7.0 Nougat skinned with Samsung’s Experience user interface.
