Yesterday Samsung release the report addressing what exactly went wrong with the Galaxy Note 7. According to Samsung, bad batteries and rushed manufacturing process lead to the Note 7 failures. The first battery had a design problem that could cause the short circuit, while the second batch has some welding defects which caused many replacement units to catch fire. Samsung is planning to solve this problem by implementing a new eight-point battery testing process.
The new eight-point testing process includes steps like durability test, visual inspection, charge-discharge test, dissembling test and more.
