Samsung Galaxy Note 7, who had a great chance to become the best Android smartphone of 2016, turned out to be a tragedy however. It’s unusual that the South Korea’s company has not confirmed what’s caused the explosions of the model. Everyone is wondering when we can hear the truth.
Kim Hong-Gyeong, one of Samsung’s executives, has recently told Reuters that they would definitely share the reason behind the issue later this year. He noted that they’ve confirmed that there’s something wrong with the battery, but it’s too early to give out an official explanation.
Samsung used to lay the blame on SDI battery for the explosions, which is exactly why they didn’t recall the ALT battery included Galaxy Note 7s in China at the very start. But after that Chinese versions and replaced models both caught on fire, so the company had to cease the production and sales of Galaxy Note 7.
The company’s next generation smartphones including Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 would launch as per its original plans, and Samsung would offer some discount for those loyal users as compensation, hoping them to support it as always.
