Samsung Note 7 investigation results coming next week
Back in December, we heard that Samsung completed the Galaxy Note 7 investigation and the results would be revealed in January. Now, it looks like this story will finally come to an end next Monday, when the South Korean giant plans to reveal the details to the public.
According to Reuters, an inside source revealed that the conclusion reached by the investigation says what everyone expected - "the battery was the main reason." The same source also mentioned that the company was able to recreate the fires during the investigation, taking out the hardware design and software-related causes from the equation.
January 23 seems like a good choice for the unveiling of the investigations' details, since the company will announce its detailed Q4 earnings data one day later. Samsung's officials are also expected to reveal the new measures they will be taking to avoid a second Note 7-style fiasco on January 24 as well. Galaxy Note 7's failure managed to deal a $5.2 billion blow to Samsung's operating profit over three quarters, also pushing down the consumers' trust in the brand.
