The factory where the Note 7 batteries are made just caught fire
February 9, 2017

Guess the problems aren’t over for Samsung.

While everyone is trying to forget the Note 7 debacle that happened last year and Samsung officially publishing that the batteries were at fault for the sudden combustion of Note 7 units, an unfortunate incident saw the factory where the defective batteries were made was in the news recently for well, catching fire.

While the fire is minor, many can’t help but wonder on how defective those batteries are. In fact, the fire originated from a room where defective products are kept, including the ones used for the Note 7. The factory was owned by Samsung SDI, one of the first companies that handled battery production on the Note 7.

The fiasco did lead to better quality assurance policies being implemented by Samsung, which is gearing up for the launch of its next flagship, the Galaxy S8. No word yet as to when they are planning to release the successor to the Note 7, but stressed that they are still keeping the Note brand.
