After The Galaxy Note 7, Samsung’s Washing Machines Start Exploding With Users Staying Safe
The final part of 2016 hasn't been good on Samsung. The Korean tech giant was all set to have a strong year with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7. The devices featured a near perfection of the company's edged design, processors and hardware specifications. The Note 7 even featured an iris scanner on board. The only problem expected from the device was mass adoption of the feature. Unlocking your device with an iris is less convenient than a fingerprint sensor after all. However, the Note 7 became famous for another reason. The device started to explode globally and as of now has been suspended by Samsung. But the Korean tech giant's woes seem to be far from over. More of Samsung's appliances have started to explode.
