The battery 'fire' on the Note 7 was a hoax. So, of course they will use their own batteries again.
[deleted post]After fiasco in the curent time the most alerted company to produce the safest products is no other than SDI!
Samsung SDI wasn't at fault for the issues with the Note 7. The engineers who decided it was ok to leave absolutely 0 expansion space in the battery compartment are at fault. It was likely a set of unfortunate circumstances that caused it though. Both the physical device design and the batteries themselves take a huge amount of time and money to design and produce. I'll bet the battery requirements were done and perhaps even production finished first, and perhaps needed a small size tweak to reach the desired capacity. Now suddenly you've got an issue where the battery still physically fits, but the compartment lacks the absolutely critical expansion space needed. That's a tough decision. Do you risk a major delay in the product launch and lose millions of dollars redesigning and reproducing all the batteries or devices to a new spec? Or try to avoid the delay by finding an existing smaller cell design that will properly fit, but adversely affecting battery life? Or, as they chose to do, just decide to release it and hope nothing goes wrong.
This incident was bound to happen to a big company sooner or later. When you are forever pushing the boundaries and requiring thinner and thinner devices while cramming as much battery capacity as possible, it only takes a few little factors to cause something like this. Did Samsung begin selling the device knowing the lack of expansion space was a huge potential hazard? Probably not given how their recalls played out including replacement units suffering the same fate.
I doubt they would still use Samsung SDI if it was the actual batteries at fault, since they had the battery recall and it still happened it was definetly something else causing the explosions to happen. Samsung will soon publish what happened some people are guessing it was the Iris Scanner but im leaning towards the USB Type C Ports since it was the first time Samsung used them in a flagship device and that is where you charge the device from.
I could be wrong but we know soon enough.
