Note 7’s demise was caused by faulty batteries, Samsung recently outed a detailed report about the disastrous failure. Ultimately, the Korean tech giant will take extra caution for its next flagship the Galaxy S8.
Japan Makes Everything Better:
Now some reports suggest that Samsung has decided to source the Galaxy S8 battery from Murata Manufacturing Works in Japan. This company also provides batteries for Sony devices.
Although majority of batteries will be made by Samsung SDI, a division of Samsung that produces batteries for its own smartphones. But it seems a good strategy to outsource some of the orders, in case SDI once again made faulty batteries.
Samsung recently announced that it has decided to put in place 8-point battery safety check for all future devices, that will ensure that the batteries are safe to use.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to launch in March / April this year, it will supposedly feature a 4K screen and the latest Snapdragon 830 processor, along with some other unique features.
