Samsung To Announce Battery Size As Main Reason For Exploding Galaxy Note 7
The mystery of the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will finally be revealed come Monday.
The Korean conglomerate is expected to release an official statement detailing the results of its investigation regarding the real reason why its supposed flagship smartphone from last year ended up in flames. Third-party investigations will also be discussed at the announcement. The press conference will be held on Jan. 23 in Seoul, Korea featuring some of the company's top executives. The live stream of the event will start at 10 a.m. KST which is around 8 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Irregular Battery Sizes
This early, however, various news outlets have gotten wind of the gist of the announcement from unnamed sources. The Wall Street Journal, for one, found out that the main cause of the Galaxy Note 7 debacle was irregularly sized batteries.
USA Today noted in its report that Samsung discovered that manufacturing problems also played a part in the fiasco. Sources did not specify what those manufacturing issues were.
The Korean tech giant also plans to divulge its plans on how to prevent such issues from ever happening again. As of now, there are rumors that Samsung is planning on using the heat pipe design used in the Galaxy S7. The pipe absorbs the heat from the chipset and disperses it into a graphite sheet.
It has long been speculated that the batteries in the doomed handsets heated up and went up in smoke while charging but the reason why they did so was never clear. Instrumental, a manufacturing engineering firm, noted that batteries expand during charging. Supposedly, there should be ample space, about 10 percent more as is the norm, for the battery to expand. The lack of space plus its use of thin separators to keep the positive and negative layers of the battery from touching was Samsung's undoing.
