Samsung Admit 2 Design Faults Caused Galaxy Note7 Explosions
Samsung have admitted that TWO separate design faults were to blame for the repeated explosions of their Galaxy Note 7 smartphones late last year.
The tech giants, who released their official report over the weekend, have pointed to two different battery issues; the first meant that the battery components didn't properly fit into the battery casing, which caused the initial round of fires.
The second round of fires were, the company believe, caused by "inadequate welding" as they rushed to manufacture replacements for the original faulty phones.
"We are committed to earning the trust of our customers through innovation that redefines what is possible in safety, and as a gateway to unlimited possibilities and incredible new experiences," Samsung's president of Mobile Communications Business, DJ Koh, said in a statement.
According to the company, 96 per cent of their Galaxy Note 7 smartphones have been returned.
