They say that one major mistake is sufficient for you to change completely and for Samsung, the Note7 fallout was a necessary measure for the company to rethink it battery safety measures. With its 8-Point Battery Safety standard, the tech giant is comfortably able to assure its millions of smartphone users that the battery explosions transpired with the Note7 will never take place again. However, that is not the only thing that the tech firm does in order to make sure that history never repeats itself nor the regular customer has to suffer for it.
Samsung Is Forced to Destroy 3 Percent of Its Battery Inventory So the User Never Has to Go Through the Note7 Incident Ever Again
After we reported that a Galaxy S8+ teardown featured the same battery capacity as that present in the Note7, it was certain that Samsung stepped up its game in battery safety. With that problem out of the way, Samsung could focus on cementing its position as the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer, and with the efforts it has laid out for battery safety and its Galaxy S8, the results tremendously favored the South Korean tech giant. With over 20 million Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ units sold, you know for a fact that Samsung has done something right.
On Samsung’s newsroom, the company states that it loses 3 percent of its monthly battery inventory for testing purposes, as stated below:
“Reading the MIT Technology Review article, you’ll find details that, until now, were only available if you stepped onto the factory floor—for instance, some tests are intentionally destructive, so Samsung loses 3% of its monthly battery inventory to testing. At the same time, you also will see how our process is built to provide as much data as possible about the process itself so we can continue to learn and improve. In fact, every single battery has an individual QR code, so we can gather unique information about each test, and then adjust and fine tune our procedures.”
The company is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 in a few weeks’ time and we are confident that the same meticulous procedures are going to be carried out for this flagship phablet the same way the company did it for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
