Samsung will officially announce the reason(s) why its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones overheated and caught fire on Jan. 23. But an early report by the Wall Street Journal lists the reasons before Samsung's event.
According to the WSJ, the main reason behind Galaxy Note 7 fires and recall was irregularly sized batteries that caused the phone to overheat. Other reason was "the batteries were manufactured defectively."
We will hear more from Samsung about "Note 7 exploding batteries" on Jan. 23 in an announcement, which will be livestreamed in Chinese, English and Korean on its websites. Koh Dong-jin, Samsung's mobile president, will give details of the probe.
