Samsung Encounters Another Battery-Related Fire Incident
It looks like the battery explosion controversy isn't backing away from Samsung anytime soon. Apparently, as the company moves on from the Note 7 explosion issue, one of its plants encountered yet another fire that was reportedly caused by a lithium battery. The fire was small and minor in nature, but considering how much fiasco faulty batteries have cause Samsung in the past, this new incident instantly made headlines.
Samsung's Plant Encounters Fire
The said explosion incident took place in a Samsung plant located in Tianjin, China. The company said that the fire was localized in their waste facility and it was subsequently put out with no reported equipment damage or casualties. Tech Crunch says that Samsung did not explain much further about the said fire incident. However, as per Reuters, the local fire department declared that the fire was battery-caused. Needless to say, this incident may not exactly reflect the safety status of the next Samsung phones. The fire occurred in a factory's waste department where lithium batteries are present, so the fire is pretty much expected, although of course, it could have also been avoided.
Samsung's New Smartphones' Safety Measures
It wasn't too long ago when Samsung finally explained the cause of the Note 7 flare-ups. As expected, the battery is the one to blame in the multiple explosion cases that Note 7 owners have reported. With that, the company promised to make their next flagships safer than ever. In fact, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will be released despite past rumors saying that it will be canceled. The company also promised that the next Note device will be safer and more innovative than its predecessors. It's pretty clear that Samsung has a lot of self-redemption to do this year, and hopefully, with the Note 8, the company will be able to finally put the controversies behind and move on to a brighter and safer future.
