Samsung broke basic

engineering rules while manufacturing Galaxy Note 7, says a new report


Samsung faced a harrowing time for more than two months ever since it launched Galaxy Note 7 in August 2016, causing the company to officially issue a worldwide recall of its devices exploding due to defective batteries. However, Samsung had to eventually shut down sales and stop production of Galaxy Note 7 after replacement devices were also reported to be combusting.

Now, engineers from the manufacturing technology company Instrumental have reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploded as the battery was too tightly packed inside the body of the device that any pressure from battery expansion, or stress on the body itself, could squeeze together layers inside the battery that are never supposed to touch with explosive results.

Chief Executive Anna Shedletsky in a post written on the company’s blog said that after acquiring a Galaxy Note 7 and a teardown — with a fire extinguisher kept nearby — Chief Technology Officer Sam Weiss and she had discovered that the design of the Note 7 crushed the battery even during normal operation.
