Things might be looking up for Samsung — you know, after the whole "phones randomly exploding" debacle last year.

Yonhap News Agency reports a court in South Korea has ruled in favor of the tech company in a class-action lawsuit filed by consumers.

According to the outlet, the suit alleged recalls of the Galaxy Note 7 caused various inconveniences to some consumers and sought around $822,000 in compensation. 

Reminder: Samsung had to recall millions of Galaxy Note 7s after the phones started bursting into flames.

But the district court overseeing the case reportedly said Samsung did its job in making the recall as easy as possible for consumers.

The news comes as Samsung gears up to launch the Galaxy Note 8 later this month.
