The explosions in the batteries of Galaxy Note 7 badly damaged the reputation of the South Korean smartphone manufacturer. But now, the latest reports are suggesting that Samsung has chosen the same company for making the battery of its next smartphone that made the batteries for the Note 7. Yes, the Galaxy S8 will come with a Samsung SDI battery.
The Samsung SDI is the company that manufactured the batteries for the Note 7, it is a subsidiary company of Samsung Electronics.
Moreover, it is also important to note that Samsung initially thought that the explosions in the Note 7 were the results of the faulty batteries, it then put the batteries of another company in this device and reintroduced it into the market. Upon testing, it was confirmed that the explosions were not happening because of the faulty battery as putting the new battery in the device also did not stop this phablet from catching the fire.
Now, Samsung is sure that Samsung SDI was not the real reason behind all these incidents, that is why it has decided to use the batteries from the same company on its next smartphone. Earlier, we were hearing the rumors that Samsung was in talks with LG and another company for purchasing the batteries for its next phone.
Samsung Galaxy S8 will be introduced in April 2017 and the company is expecting that this product will see massive sales. There are also some reports that the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer has already provided a production plan to its suppliers for handling the S8.
The company will introduce this device without the 3.5mm headphone jack and there is also a chance that wireless hands-free will come with this product. Tech experts are also speculating that this smartphone will come with an 8GB RAM, however, there is no official confirmation regarding this report.
