Samsung pegs the Note 7 investigation report release date, press conference to be streamed live


Samsung knows very well that it has to put the Note 7 story behind it, if it wants people to refocus on the upcoming Galaxy S8 models, which will be a make or break moment for the mobile division. At the same time, it didn't want to rush to conclusions, but do a thorough investigation with the help of third-party specialists, too, from the Korean equivalent of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Well, they have obviously found the elusive culprit behind the thermal runaway of the Note 7 batteries, as Samsung just posted an official announcement that the investigation report will be unveiled to the public on January 23rd, just as rumored. That's not all Samsung is going to clear up on Sunday in Korea, though, as it will also be disclosing the quality control improvements it has made in the meantime to avoid such an incident happening again, and which might be behind the rumored delay in the Galaxy S8 release date for mid-April, instead of the typical mid-March schedule. 

Samsung will be broadcasting its Note 7 investigation press conference live at 10am Korean Standard Time on Monday, here's how to tune in from the US, along with your Sunday dinner, as Korea is 14 hours ahead of the East Coast time zone:
8pm ET / 5pm PT Sunday, January 22, at Samsung Newsroom or Samsung.com - watch the Galaxy Note 7 investigation report findings announcement live stream

Let's see what excuses Samsung comes up with. Probably something that will show that Samsung is in denial. Let's hope that they never have another S-Plode moment, or Samsung Galaxy users will be salty and bumburned about it.

Nobody on this planet would want to come up with a device which malfunctions. Unless he/she shares similar personality as you do.

They will deny it as they always do and brainwash their blind s-sheep. Filthy corrupt company.

You shouldn't talk about Apple that way in a Samsung article.

Just blame it on the factory that made the batteries and supplied them to Samsung. It's not like Samsung mines the raw materials from the earth and then they made the batteries. I don't think Samsung even has a battery factory. Then again, the batteries were made to Samsungs required specs and design. Someone fucked up.
