CCTV footage has captured the moment an exploding phone nearly killed Cee-Lo Green.
In October, Samsung announced that they would be ‘permanently discontinuing’ the production and sale of their S7 Edge phone, after customers reported that it was ‘exploding’.
After millions of the model had been sold, users began to report them overheating and ‘exploding’ – before manufacturers advised them to ‘switch them off’ to prevent further danger.
Now, the phone will longer be made. “Taking our customer’s safety as our highest priority, we have decided to halt sales and production of the Galaxy Note 7,” said Samsung in a statement.

Surveillance footage (above) has captured the harrowing moment of a phone exploding in Cee-Lo Green’s hands. Following the explosion, Cee-Lo is seen lying motionless on the floor.
As there are no timestamps on the video, it’s unclear when exactly the incident took place. For his part, the musician has yet to publicly comment. It has not been undisputedly confirmed that the phone that explodes on the CCTV footage is a Samsung model.
