Normally when we talk about an event / press conference that will be broadcast live for everyone, it is for the presentation of a new terminal, but the event next Sunday morning / Monday morning will be quite different: the results of the autopsy of Samsung’s most explosive terminal, the Galaxy Note 7.
Much has been talked about what could have been the reasons that led to several of these terminals to ignite spontaneously, forcing the company to change it and finally to stop production, being the main suspects both the battery and the compact design of the interior of the device . Very soon we will leave doubts.
The cause and how to prevent it from happening again
Samsung’s press release is somewhat brief, and is that you note that this issue of the Galaxy Note 7 has become a heavy burden that the South Korean company wants to leave behind and forget as soon as possible.
The only thing we can extract from it is that the press conference will be available globally through live-stream from the Samsung website and that both Samsung Electronics and independent organizations of experts will show the results of their research on various aspects related to the fires of the Galaxy Note7.
The event will officially start at 10:00 on Monday 23, Korean time (UTC + 9), which is equivalent to 2:00 Spanish time and 7:00 pm the previous day in Mexico City. Once the causes are known, it will be the turn of looking at the future and Samsung will announce the measures that the company is implementing to prevent such a problem from happening again in the future.
The latest news we have about the causes of the fires came from an anonymous source and pointed to the battery as the only cause, without software influence or hardware design. However, this explanation, as well as being brief, leaves some questions unresolved, which we hope to know in great detail next Monday. Many eyes will be watching this press conference, and not only of potential consumers, but also investors. With them Samsung has an appointment the next day, to present the results of the last quarter.
