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.
And Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 woes continue. In the last few weeks, owners of the phablet have already been advised by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to refrain from charging or even using the device.
It has not been a good week for the biggest seller of smartphones in the world. Samsung has recently announced that because of issues in the battery used for its newest phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean tech giant is halting all sales of the device across the globe, and is officially recalling all units sold since the handset’s launch back in August 19.
