Samsung Holds Press Conference To Discuss Note 7 Fires

samsung note 7

Samsung had a two hour press conference on the design failure and manufacturing that caused the fires with their Note 7.

Koh Dong-jin, the president of mobile communications at Samsung, announced that the reason why the fires were caused in the Note 7 was because the battery (which was made by Samsung SDI) had electrodes that short circuited which was caused by the electrodes touching which in turn caused fires.

The batteries were bought from Amperex, a TDK company, which was also not perfect as well. Here is what Koh had announced that day.

“We provided the target for the battery specifications for the innovative Note 7, and we are taking responsibility for our failure to ultimately identify and verify the issues arising out of battery design and manufacturing. We have taken several corrective actions to make sure this never happens again.”
