Samsung is delaying shipments of the Galaxy Note 7 following reports of exploding batteries

Samsung is delaying shipments of its latest phone, the Galaxy Note 7, for quality testing, the company told Reuters Wednesday.

Samsung wouldn’t comment on what kind of quality testing, but there have been scattered reports that some Galaxy Note 7 batteries are exploding, according to the Korea Herald. A Samsung spokesperson was not available for additional comment.

It’s unclear how many units are being delayed or how if current Note 7 phones, which went on sale earlier this month, will be affected.

The Galaxy Note 7 received glowing reviews from just about everyone. It’s the best Android phone you can buy, and the most beautiful phone ever made. However, if the battery issue spreads, that could be a big problem for Samsung’s otherwise successful launch.
