I’m sure we all heard about or even saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explode and many times too. The Phablet was prematurely killed off afterwards, Samsung globally recalled them and it stripped them of billions.
It’s funny but some individuals in the U.S. made their Halloween costume with that concept, wearing a Samsung Note 7 costume which had smoke pipes just to demonstrate how it was then.
Now in order to clear the air, Samsung has announced that it will be holding a press conference to explain exactly what happened with its fiery flagship product, and what will be done prevent such occurrences in the future.
Following several months of comprehensive investigations, Samsung executives will announce the cause of the Galaxy Note 7 incidents and quality enhancement plan during a press conference in Seoul, South Korea, on January 23 2017 at 10am (KST)
The conference will be live streamed in Samsung Newsroom, and will be translated to English simultaneously. It’ll be streaming January 22 at 5pm (PST) in the U.S, January 23 at 1am (GMT) in the UK, 12pm (AEDT) in Australia and 11am (SGT) in Singapore.
During this conference both Samsung and individual expert organizations who also conducted their own investigation into various aspects of the Galaxy Note 7 incidents, would reveal their findings. The same platform would also be used to “unveil new measures Samsung has implemented in response to the incidents.”
