Within days, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 8 which became the most awaited phablet for this year. Worried that the case of the burst Note 7 will happen again?
Samsung certainly not that stupid repeat the failure that occurred in the Galaxy Note 7. Hence, this South Korean vendor has a series of tests that make Galaxy Note 8 will not be a “bomb” like its predecessor. Why?
In a video published on YouTube, Samsung has extra rigorous testing of the battery used on its device. Given the cause of the explosion in Note 7 is in this sector.
With a total of eight tests, the battery on Samsung devices including the Galaxy Note 8 will be safe to use in the long run. These eight tests include physical examination with X-rays, endurance standards, battery charging and discharging cycles, leakage checks on voltages, unexpected voltage change battery unloading, and battery behavior simulations after two weeks of use.
Smooth testing is claimed Samsung will detect potential battery problems as happened in Galaxy Note 7. With the tight testing, of course, they do not want to take the slightest risk that will make the Galaxy Note 8 a product that failed in the market.
Smoothly tested that Samsung claims will be classified as potential problems that occur in the Galaxy Note 7. With strict testing certainly, they do not want to take the slightest that will make the Galaxy Note 8 a product that failed in the market.
In addition, Galaxy Note 8 will also carry a smaller battery capacity, which is 3,300 mAh compared to Note 7 3,500 mAh capacity. Will the smaller the battery make the explosion smaller? The theory is undeniable, but certainly, with a small battery size will reduce the pressure because the dimensions of a larger device and a relief for him to immerse in the body.
However, with a smaller battery size, certainly, the durability of Galaxy Note 8 will not be longer than Note 7. But, is not that so the risk of a frightening explosion will not happen?
Just a turn around time, Galaxy Note 7 withdrawn from the global market due to the case of excessive heat (overheating) on the battery resulting in serious incidents, such as fire. Based on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report, the agency that handles consumer protection in the United States found 26 cases of fire and 55 device damage caused by the smartphone.
