Report: Samsung to Disclose Note 7 Battery Issue this Month, Note 8 will Sport a 2160p Display
With CES happening this week, there’s been a lot of talk about what Samsung will do with their upcoming smartphones. At the end of November, it was reported that Samsung would officially announce what actually caused the battery issue of the Galaxy Note 7. We were told they would announce what went wrong by the end of the year, but we’re already in 2017 and that information has yet to be revealed.
Though a new report from Business Korea this week states that Samsung will finally disclose the issue with the Note 7 this month. The report does mention that it wasn’t caused by a “simple battery problem” but instead, based on the information they were given, it was actually an “electronic hardware design problem.” Again, until we hear the official report from Samsung, this case cannot be laid to rest. We’ll have to hope that Samsung’s official response to the battery issue actually releases later this month as the report suggests.
On the bright side, the report mentions some additional details on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 as well. Business Korea states that they were in touch with an “official from a Samsung Electronics’ partner company” and believe they have some information about Samsung’s upcoming high-end smartphones. If true, we’re told that the Galaxy S8 will not have a 2160p display like some earlier rumors suggested, and will instead continue with a 1440p display instead.
However, this partner company also has reason to believe that Samsung will bump up the resolution of the Galaxy Note 8 to 2160p. This will be the first smartphone from Samsung with a resolution this high. They’re under the impression that Samsung will do offer this resolution in the Note 8 for”improved virtual reality functions.”
