This specific factory was responsible for producing PCBs (circuit boards) for all Galaxy S5 devices. The fire was made known around 7 am Sunday morning and fire brigade reached soon after the area, comprised of 81 vehicles and 287 firemen! The fire was extinguished after 6 hours but the damages are supposedly huge, around 1$ billion!


Samsung announced that this accident will not affect Galaxy S5 sales and availability, so all Galaxy fans will be able to buy it on the 11th of April if all goes well. Let’s see!
