Samsung Galaxy Note 7′s faulty internal design led to explosions
 

This is why Galaxy Note 7 exploded

Samsung has to bear great loss due to the explosion of one of their best phones. They have announced that they will publish the investigation report later this month that what was the real cause of the explosion and battery problem in Galaxy Note 7. It was very surprising that the company which makes their own hardware and engineering tools can commit such mistake.

As per the Instrumental’s examination, the reason for the explosion was not the battery problem but rather it was the aggressive internal design of the mobile. The company came to a conclusion that the phablet’s design compresses the battery even during the normal routine operations. The battery of Note 7 was made up of a positive layer that is made of Lithium Cobalt Oxide and a negative layer that is made up of Graphite.

The two electrolyte-soaked separators are made up of the polymer. The explosion occurs when the positive and negative layers come in contact with each other. In this case, the role of the separator between the two layers is very important. It seems that the company was trying to fix a large capacity battery into a thin design of the mobile to make its look attractive and stylish but unfortunately leaving small space inside the battery case leads to explosions.

It was a good try from Samsung to make the battery life of Note 7 longer than the other mobiles but also making it that much thinner which led to the problem. This task could be achieved if it does not have the aggressive design. The company has published full pages ads in order to apologize for the customers for the mistake they had made.
