Samsung to publish detailed white paper report on Note 7 fiasco


Samsung is planning on publishing a white paper about last year's massive recall of its high-end Galaxy Nore 7 handset, according to Chosun Biz. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a white paper is an official report which provides detailed information and proposals on a given issue. 

The Korean media cites Samsung representatives who provided more information about the latest proceedings:


Said white paper will most likely detail every aspect of the Note 7 project and its subsequent recall, including research and development, parts, testing, production, marketing, sales, as well as specific cases for a better analysis. 

It is reported that multiple officials from Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI (the subsidiary which manufactured a portion of the battery cells) are leading the project, while representatives from the chief risk management office which was created following the disaster are also joining in. 

Unfortunately, the white paper will be distributed internally and it's very unlikely that it will become publicly available due to security reasons. Still, there's always a slight chance for things to leak out.

Why the hell should they sell out of every little bit of information from R&D to end sales...Sometimes its amazing how empty in the head some people can be....

Looking at the pictures itself. The model that was being tested are the galaxy S8 and S8 Plus! There's not a single note 7 on the test bench.
