Despite reservations from critics about its overall innovation and design, the Samsung Galaxy S5 still appears to have garnered a lot of attention and a lot of interest, becoming one of the hottest topics of the last month, but we never expected this: apparently, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is so hot that it’s set a factory on fire, in particular a factory that has been contracted to build the S5′s PCBs.
It wasn’t some small, contained fire either; the fire required the attention of 287 firefighters and 80 fire vehicles, causing an estimated $1 billion in equipment damage. Thankfully, it seems that nobody has been hurt. Samsung hasn’t outright said that this incident is going to affect the launch date of the S5, however, it has said they are looking at getting the same PCBs from other factories as to not cause a delay. With a month till the April 11th release date, we hope they get that sorted soon.
Do you think this incident is going to affect the Samsung Galaxy S5 supply when it is finally released? Let us know your opinion in the comments.
