The Samsung Galaxy Note7 has been recalled worldwide. But Samsung's problems might just be beginning.
The electronics giant still hasn't figured out what causes the phone's battery to catch fire. And that's delaying production of the Galaxy S8, its next flagship phone, according to The Wall Street Journal.
And to make matters worse, PhoneArena reports Galaxy S7s are also catching fire.
A PhoneArena user said the S7 Edge caught fire while charging. He was only using the phone after returning his Note7.
We've reached out to Samsung for comment.
Lab reports showed the problematic batteries came from one supplier. That ultimately backfired, as replacement batteries didn't stop the fires. A spokeswoman said the company "remain[ed] committed" to finding out the cause.
That search for the fatal flaw is delaying production of the Samsung Galaxy S8 by at least two weeks. That might not seem like much, but in the highly competitive smartphone space, release dates can matter. Some suspect the Note7's flaws were a result of rushing to beat the iPhone 7 out the door.
The Galaxy S7 was released in March, and the Galaxy S line in general tends to release in spring.
Meanwhile, Samsung estimates it will lose $3 billion over the Note7's issues, CNET reports.
