What was the problem with Note 7
Three months have passed since Samsung officially recalled the Galaxy Note 7. However, the company has not officially explained what caused the phone’s battery to overheat and the phone to fire until now. In an independent report, the problem seems to have revealed about the phone itself
A group of hardware engineers, together with a production technology company called Instrumental, examined a few Note 7 units. They explored the possibility of explosion from a fundamental question in the design.
Samsung has claimed that the problem with the first explanation of Note 7 may be due to a faulty pulse. However, Anna Shedletsky from Instrumental said, “If there was only one battery problem, the problem could be solved by replacing the batteries. Why is the product completely removed from production and collected? ”
It seems that the cause of the problem is not the battery itself, but excessive compression in the phone. The high-capacity thin battery that is placed in the Slim Note 7 case naturally swells. The report states that there should be a gap in the battery, considering the battery swelling. Accordingly, in Note 7 a 0.5 mm battery compartment should be tanned, but it is not present.
Samsung designed the Note 7 because it wanted to offer a super slim smart phone, despite its long battery life and high performance. The company seems to be pushing the limits of what is possible with sacrificing the safety of its users. However, in practical use, the results were not as expected.
