Samsung inquest finds Note7 battery is to blame

Vince, 16 January 2017

Reuters reports that Samsung's official investigation regarding the Galaxy Note7 fire bursts concluded that the battery mainly is to blame. The company is yet to officially announce the results of its investigation to the public.

The word "mainly" used by the anonymous Reuters source is interesting. As we reported back in December, experts from Instrumental ruled that Note7's exploding battery is caused by extreme reduction of internal margins.

If the Samsung Galaxy Note7 was designed with slightly more room for the battery, the phone wouldn't have caught fire.

Over 96% of Galaxy Note7 phones are back at Samsung and airlines are no longer warning users for the fire hazard that the smartphone imposes. We'll be waiting for the company's official statement which should come next week.
