seoul - The problems with the latest copies of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are likely from the previous failures in the same device. There seems to be no connection between what was wrong first and subsequent defects in the replacement phones. Bloomberg reports that according to a participant in the matter.
Samsung presented the Note 7, his flagship, in August. The smartphone should already be called back quickly when it became clear that the appliance could catch fire. The battery, made by subsidiary Samsung SDI was slightly too big for the box that had been made before. That could cause a short circuit.
Samsung then ordered new batteries at the Chinese Amperex Technology. But thus went wrong.
The Note 7 should be the main competitor to the iPhone 7, but Samsung has decided to completely stop the production and sale of the unit. The problems cost the company probably at least 1.6 billion euros.
