The first Galaxy Note 7 explosions concerned phablets packing Samsung SDI batteries that were sold all over the world except for China, where the phone employed ATL batteries. But overheating, and sometimes exploding, Note7 devices led Samsung to recall them - including those with replacement batteries.
The article notes that only certain batteries were of irregular size, leading to overheating, while others had "manufacturing problems".
Samsung will announce the findings of its official investigation about the defects that lead to the Galaxy Note 7s recall and ultimate discontinuation.
The company is planning to reveal the results of its investigation into the faulty devices this weekend, and according to a Wall Street Journal report, it's going to blame two separate battery issues.
Executives from the manufacturer, as well as independent expert organisations who conducted their own investigations, will share their findings.
The Note 7 debacle has been a public relations nightmare for Samsung. It's unclear for now as to what exactly these secondary issues were. Unfortunately, the problems didn't stop.
These days, Samsung is pushing out the Nougat update to Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners, but soon, other eligible devices will follow.
Samsung has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to its devices, with its flagship smartphones first in line for the software upgrade.
The Journal also reports that Samsung has created an eight-step process for dealing with batteries in the future that will focus more on testing and quality assurance. Following the recall, feds banned the Note 7 from any flight out of the USA, with many other countries doing the same.
Almost five months after the first Galaxy Note7 unexpectedly caught fire, prompting a massive unprecedented worldwide recall, Samsung's ongoing headache might finally be coming to an end.
