Baku, January 21 AZERTAC
Samsung has not only halted sales of the device “over concerns about the smartphone’s safety,” but it has also warned users that they should power down their phones. The Seoul, South Korea-based firm and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission have issued a second recall for all Note 7 devices.
Now, after a months-long independent investigation involving three quality-control and supply-chain analysis firms, Samsung is reported to have discovered the cause of the Galaxy Note 7’s manufacturing defects.
According to the Wall Street Journal, an irregularly-sized, Samsung-made battery caused overheating in some units, while batteries made by third party ATL resulted from “the quick ramp-up” in the production of replacement phones.
The company is expected to announce its findings during a press event in Seoul, South Korea.
