Samsung denies Galaxy S7 battery issues

The company has had a bit of a rough time of it lately on the battery front...

Tech giant Samsung has come out to deny claims that their Galaxy S7 devices are suffering from battery issues, similar to those faced by the Note 7. 

The company issued a short statement on its website to refute any claims of battery issues. It says that "severe external  damage" is to blame for some reported incidents. 

"Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident."
