Samsung Will Blame Battery Size for Note 7 Explosions

 Friday, January 20, 2017

Samsung will finally tell us why the Galaxy Note 7 exploded at a press conference on Sunday night (Monday morning, South Korea time). According to The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, the company’s months-long investigation will lay blame on the size of the batteries used in the phone. Ahead of the recall, there was a lot of discussion as to why the phones exploded, was it the way the batteries charged? Was the thinness of the phone a contributing factor? The Korean company will announce that Samsung SDI Co. made batteries that didn’t fit properly into the device, causing it to overheat, said the person, who declined to be identified because the results of the probe haven’t been made public.
