Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Gets Reinforcement, LG Chem Partnership Hope To Dissolve Battery Explosions Aura
The road to redemption continues for Samsung as they find ways to erase the memory of the exploding battery mess caused by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. There is a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 expected and the Korean giant has time to erase that stigma.
As mentioned in a previous post, the anticipated specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 continue to ramp up. Optical fingerprint and iris scanner security have been mentioned along with other eye-catching specs that Samsung has been known to offer.
But then again, all these new probable features that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will carry will be useless unless the company is able to correct the reason behind the fire-causing battery explosions of the fallen Phablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was believed to be overstuffed and the batteries were simply unable to carry the load. Hence, turning to a new battery supplier could change the fortunes. And the one stepping up to the plate is LG Chem, the company’s battery subsidiary.
LG Chem may have placed itself in the hot seat as it tries to lend Samsung a hand. They are expected to take over and change the batteries for the embattled electronics giant which previously used SDI and ATL batteries for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Reuters reported.
The alleged tie-up is reportedly 90 percent done and if all goes well, Samsung will start procuring LG Chem batteries by the second half of 2017. The LG subsidiary manufactures phone batteries for LG Electronics as well Apple Inc.
If LG Chem does come in by the second half of 2017, it may be a close one to call for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. There are claims that the next phablet could come out by May 2017 though the recent mishap could force Samsung to consider delaying its release until a safe and suitable battery has been chosen.
