This is why Note 7 exploded
There are days till the official report, but a new study has been launched on why Galaxy Note 7, which had been a nightmare for Samsung in 2016, exploded.
The issue of Galaxy Note 7, which ended with Samsung withdrawing the phone from the markets due to the explosion of battery, was being investigated for months. According to a Korean source Chosun, Dong-jin Koh, chairman of Samsung Mobile, who completed his research, will explain why some of the Galaxy Note7’s batteries exploded on January 23rd.
While Samsung fans were holding their breath, Instrument, independent design company announced the results of a self-study report and found at least one of the reasons for the explosion.
Anna Shedletsky, formerly the chief designer of Apple Watch, dismantled the Galaxy Note 7 to the smallest point to get to the root of the problem, along with the crew and CEO of Instrument.
Even in normal use, the shelf of the Galaxy Note 7 was expanding and stacking up to put pressure on the battery. This forced the layers of positive and negative cells in the battle under and over, compressing the insulator layer. With this pressure, the positive and negative layers associated with holding the energized charge were so close to each other that the layer with heat insulation became useless and the risk of smoke extraction and bursting increased continuously as the warming could not be overcome.
The decision by Samsung to fit a 3500 mAh battery in such a small space is also affecting this problem. So it is not important to fit the battery safely at all.
“Samsung’s innovative battery manufacturing process has changed a lot during the development of the Galaxy Note 7, and the final products are not as tightly controlled as the first ones,” says Shedletsky, who explains that “battery tests need to be spread out over a thousand times and that thousands of batteries should be tested to get good results.” Probable, “he said.
According to an investigation conducted by the Instrument, the battery of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was so compressed that “there was not even a place to breathe”. Even if the Galaxy Note 7 had not been pulled out of the market, the users would get out of shape due to warmth on their phones. “It’s clear that there is no savior design that could prevent this problem, no matter what,” Instrument concluded.
Researchers in the Korean and US governments who conducted their own research in this process came to the conclusion that the phone had a very demanding feature like the S pen and iris scanner, even though it was not designed to effectively dissipate heat from the battery.
The worst was that the software that was designed to shut off the phone when overheated wasn’t working.
After all, it is talking about a collection of issues, not a question that raises the risk of explosion. With a combination of software, hardware and design problems, many problems related to warming would occur even if the Galaxy Note 7 did not explode.
“We officially declare what the problem is and plan a security policy that will guarantee that the Galaxy S8 is safe,” a Samsung official speaking on condition of confidentiality said.
