So, finally, the truth as to exactly why Galaxy Note 7 batteries burned has been disclosed by the company yesterday at 10 am (KST) from its hometown. Off course, it took a long period of investigation to decipher the exact reason, however, Samsung addressed numerous reasons behind the fact as we can see below.
Battery burning reason
First, an awful battery design and a hurry to release a redesigned form of the Galaxy Note 7 were what caused the gadgets to overheat and detonate, while two separate battery faults also brought on, for some Note 7 devices, the same fate. One of those was that the battery was too big for the casing of the phone, which caused some to overheat and burn.
Furthermore, after recalling its first batch of Galaxy Note 7 devices from the market, Samsung manufactured the phone via third party supplier’s batteries while Samsung was busy to release its other mobile device. But unfortunately, the third party’s batteries turned out to be defected as well. Therefore, after recalling them again Samsung received the same complaint from consumers, however, at last Samsung was bound to terminate its Galaxy Note 7 production for the sake of Samsung’s long reputation.
Future awareness of the battery
For the future awareness of the battery, Samsung has taken some steps so that the same mistake does not occur again. As Samsung said that it has built up another eight-point battery check towards ensuring future gadgets don’t endure an indistinguishable destiny from the Galaxy Note 7. The test incorporates an X-ray of the device and extraordinary testing conditions that constrain the battery to work harder than ordinary.
And more importantly, Samsung formed a panel of counsels who are professors from some of the world’s famous universities such as University of Cambridge, UC Berkeley, and Stanford University.
