Samsung has revealed the reasons behind why the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets exploded. A report from last week kind of leaked the information out beforehand and it was suggested that the batteries were to blame, and sure enough during Samsung’s press conference, the company did confirm that there were issues with the batteries.
Samsung has confirmed that they will be sharing the results of their investigation with us this coming Monday, the 23rd of January. There has been quite a bit of speculation as to what might have went wrong, and recently it was suggested that the battery was to blame. It’s starting to look that way thanks to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.
About a week ago, it was reported that Samsung would be announcing the results of its Galaxy Note 7 investigation on the 23rd of January. Samsung did not actually come right out and say it so it wasn’t clear how true this was, at least until now where Samsung has confirmed that the 23rd of January date is accurate.
When the three other major carriers in the US announced their plans to issue an update that would effectively disable the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Verizon was the only carrier to not come on board with the plan. Their reason was that they did not want customers to be out of a phone during the holiday season.
We’re sure many are curious as to what could have been the problem with the Note 7 that caused it to explode not just once, but twice, and this was even after swapping battery suppliers. According to a report from Reuters, it seems that the battery could have been the one at fault after all.
Earlier this month we reported that Samsung would be revealing the results of its Note 7 investigation this month, or at least that was what was speculation.

Following the increasing number of reports of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding, it was understandable that the FAA and airline companies around the world banned the phone from being brought on board. Airlines would also make announcements ahead of flights to remind passengers that they should not possess the phone on their person.
The Galaxy Note 7 ended up being a disaster for Samsung even though it could have been one of the best-selling handsets. While there has been speculation about Samsung killing the Note lineup, so far it seems highly unlikely that the company would take such a major step.

At the moment it’s really anyone’s guess as to what caused the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets to explode not just once, but twice.

Samsung had high hopes from the Galaxy Note 7 and soon after the device was officially launched, it seemed like this handset was going to be a hit.

As you’ve probably heard by now, Samsung is planning on disabling remaining unreturned Galaxy Note 7 handsets. In the US that process has already begun with T-Mobile’s Note 7, and it seems that in other parts of the world, such as Malaysia, Samsung is planning on doing the same thing as well.
In case all the notifications and reminders, battery limitations, and monetary incentives weren’t enough to get users to return their Note 7 smartphones, Samsung has turned to their last resort which is to push out an update that would effectively kill off the smartphone, and it seems that the Note 7 handsets at T-Mobile will be the first to receive it.
We get that giving your WiFi SSID’s clever names can be funny sometimes, but sometimes it can be downright distasteful. Just the other day we reported that a flight was cancelled because a passenger thought it was funny to name his/her WiFi hotspot “Galaxy Note 7”, which in case you didn’t know, is banned from being brought on board planes.
With the various incentives that Samsung has been offering customers to get them to return their Galaxy Note 7 handset, not to mention the danger that comes with owning one of the phones since they seem to be prone to exploding, it isn’t surprising that many users have since returned their handsets.
