Galaxy Note 7 explodes, and we’re not talking about demand

One great culinary trend you’ll find in your nearest Koreatown is the country’s deep-fried chicken. Like a good batch of chips (or fries), they’re fried twice — once for actual cooking, then again at a higher temperature for crispiness.

One Baidu forums user in China recently had a very unpleasant frying experience, though.

We don’t have any context as to how the “world’s first deep-fried Galaxy Note 7” got to be that way, but we suppose it’s thanks to an exploded battery. That said, check out this next picture here.


That USB-C adapter on what’s likely a third-party cable has led to some questions. No visuals on the power block, either — our access to Baidu outside of China is limited. Whatever the case, we suggest that you keep your wires and adapters as first-party as possible or from popular, trusted sources.

Three months ago, a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ burst into flames while off the charger. Let’s hope that these events are kept to a minimum.
