Default Samsung GS4 possible recall

I just found out at work while on a Samsung technician training the galaxy as 4's are possibly going to be recalled. The frame of the phone is to weak and flex's easy resulting in the screen cracking down the middle. Samsung is determining how many they've sold and what the cost would be. Depending on the cost they'd either issue a recall or replace the phone when it breaks for that reason.

Just letting the community know.

That sound you just heard was thousands of Android freaks frantically googling for a corroborating link.

Do you have any more information?

Quick, everyone run to AT&T and see if you can snap the display phone in half!

That's the type of information that is usually way up the food chain. The kind of information that can drive investors to cost a company hundreds of millions of dollars. How is it that tidbit of information fell into the hands of a technical group? Not directly calling you out just wondering as the person above me, is there any corroborating evidence? Or is this just something that is said off the cuff on the call? Because what you're alleging is a pretty big deal.

DONATE TO ME
It makes sense though... There was that 1 guy who has a cracked screen under his glass, with no visible damage to the outer glass or phone so it could have been induced from this "recall". The guy says he never dropped the phone and the glass in the pic proves it. There was a crack down the middle of the display under glass...

I just barley dropped mine and the screen shattered, very weak screen. I hope this recall happens!
