Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is definitely up there among the costliest disasters in the tech industry and in order to regain consumer trust, Samsung promised that it will be investigating the matter and come back with feedback detailing what really happened to the phone.
Months since the probe begun, it appears that we’ll soon find out what really happened to Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The phone had barely lived a month and things went from good to worse in a flip of a coin. The phone had seen some of the best reviews come its way, but the unexpected starting happening, with reports from all over saying that the phone was exploding into flames for no reason. Most people started blaming the phone’s battery, but as Samsung proved via the first recall of the phone, this had to do with more than just the battery.
A new report has just come in saying that Samsung is ready to release the results from the Galaxy Note 7 probe, but it will be doing so at some point this month. The exact date is still unknown, but it shouldn’t be long from now.
Samsung has been busy trying to wipe out the remaining Galaxy Note 7 units from the market, with the latest attempt proving to be too extreme for many. The company is rolling out an update that will make the Note 7 unusable. The phone won’t be able to charge and when plugged into a power source, it will display a warning message that you need to return the phone. T-Mobile has already rolled out the update while AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are set to follow this week and early next week.
The company is making an effort to ready the stage for the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 – a phone that is expected to clean the dirt left behind by the Note 7. If all goes according to the rumors, the S8 will be launched next month at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona.
The claim that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 probe results will be made public this month are not yet fully confirmed, so take this report with a grain of salt.
