Samsung Galaxy Note 7 investigation to reveal what went wrong with exploding phone

Later this month, Samsung will reveal exactly what caused a number of Galaxy Note 7 handsets to explode, forcing the company to recall and discontinue its flagship smartphone.

The JoongAng Ilbo newspaper in Korea claims to have spoken to anonymous sources who say that the mobile maker will reveal the findings of its investigations into problems with the phone over the next few weeks.

While Samsung has refused to comment, a public apology and explanation of its failings are likely to soothe customer concerns ahead of the planned launch of its next flagship device, the Galaxy S8.

That phone is not expected to be unveiled until April, although Samsung will be keen to show that lessons have been learned following the failure of battery packs in the Galaxy Note 7.

The exploding phones are said to have cost Samsung millions and led to its share price plummeting in the immediate aftermath of the debacle.
