Samsung delays Galaxy Note 7 shipments for quality control

The recently released phone needs more testing, the company said. Could it be due to exploding batteries?

Maybe be careful holding that Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

That's not what people usually mean when they say their phones are blowin' up.

Samsung said Wednesday it will delay shipments of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to do additional quality tests, according to Reuters. The announcement comes after reports on South Korean social media that the phones' batteries were exploding en route to customers.

Photos republished by Apple Insider show fried phones, one with a blast marks running from left to right across the screen.

Samsung didn't immediately provide a comment, but told Reuters, "Shipments of the Galaxy Note 7 are being delayed due to additional tests being conducted for product quality."

The company hasn't confirmed the reports of exploding phone batteries and gave no details in its statement to Reuters.
