Samsung Will Be Announcing Why Its Galaxy Note 7 Exploded Before Year End
Samsung earlier announced that it was going to suspend sales of its crown jewel after several reports started coming in that the phablet was unexpectedly catching fire and exploding, which is obviously due to the result of volatile batteries. While Samsung might not have figured out the origin of the problem, the tech giant states that it will have an explanation before the year ends.
Samsung Still Hasn’t Provided a Shred of Detail as to Why These Incidents Took Place – Samsung SDI Has Suffered Greatly Thanks to the Note 7 Saga
There was a report suggesting that Samsung might have rushed the Note 7 launch in order to get a competitive edge over the iPhone. While the announcement date of the Galaxy Note 7 came much before the Android-powered phablet, there have been no major setbacks regarding the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Samsung is going to finalize the results of its probe, and according to sources close to the matter, the explanation is going to be provided before the year ends.
This will actually serve as an educational step for not only manufacturers but consumers as well since they will know how volatile batteries are and what steps should be taken in order to prevent a smartphone transforming into a ticking time bomb. Even after replacing the Samsung SDI batteries present in the Note 7 with China’s ATL, the battery problems persisted, forcing the company to halt sales of the Note 7 worldwide.
One Samsung official has stated the following regarding the probe:
“We are considering all possibilities to find out the exact cause of the accidents.”
This investigation will also serve as a careful measure with the Galaxy S8, which is said to be announcing after the MWC 2017 trade show. Galaxy S8 will be going through extensive internals tests during the start of 2017 to make sure that everything is going to according to plan. There are notable upgrades expected from the phablet, so Samsung should not flip a coin and wait for things to go bad, especially when a lot of capital is on the line. Do you feel that the expected explanation regarding the Note 7’s battery problems will provide us a little education on smartphones and how to use them properly? Tell us your thoughts right away.
