After going through a couple of separate issues related to the battery for its latest phablet offering, it would make sense for Samsung to try to start over with a clean slate in terms of looking for a battery supplier for its flagship devices. According to a report published by Koreans news website Han Kyung, the tech giant may be doing exactly that.
As promised, Samsung has officially revealed the real causes of the overheating problems of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet. According to the South Korean phone maker, there were two separate issues directly attributable to the device’s battery, which led to the handset overheating and even catching fire.
According to a report published by Reuters, Samsung will be releasing the full results of its investigation into what caused its Galaxy Note 7 device to catch fire or even explode this coming January 23rd. The Reuters news report also stated that the phablet’s overheating problems are likely tied to battery issues, and not to any hardware or software aspect.
Yikes. Apple has disclosed that there is a defect in the batteries of certain iPhone 6s units that causes them to shut down all of a sudden. According to the tech giant, the likely affected devices are those iPhone 6s units manufactured between September and October of last year.
The nightmare continues for Samsung. Just this week, the biggest vendor of smartphone devices in the world has decided to request all of its global partners to stop selling or exchanging units of its the Galaxy Note 7 while further investigation is still ongoing.
