Samsung To Reveal Galaxy Note 7 Probe Results This Month

Reuters, citing unnamed sources, says that Samsung will reveal the results of its Galaxy Note 7 probe later this month. It will be interesting to see what was causing all those phones to spontaneously combust.

The South Korean firm said in October it was examining all aspects of the phone, suggesting there may be a combination of factors that contributed to one of the costliest product safety failures in tech history. The world's top smartphone maker warned of a $5.1 billion hit to its operating profit over three quarters following its decision to permanently halt Galaxy Note 7 sales in October.
