Did Samsung's rush to beat Apple explode its battery?

  • In a sad irony, the first explosion of the Galaxy Note 7 was reported from the company home ground, South Korea, itself
  • Another irony is that by launching just before Apple's, Samsung did beat the old 'Samsung copies the Apple’s technology' allegations, but failed in every other sense

September 2016 will be remembered in technology circles as a historic failure forSamsung's push to overpower Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

 

After rumours had surfaced that Apple Inc will not be making any significant changes in their new iPhones, which were to be rolled out in September, Samsung seemed overexcited to launch the Galaxy Note 7 ahead of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to capitalise on the lack of innovation in the Apple devices.

 

There was a clear rush to release the Galaxy Note 7 - Samsung's trump card - in the first week of September, ahead of archenemy Apple. The plan would have been successful...if Samsung had not left the battery leaking.

 

In a sad irony, the first explosion of the Galaxy Note 7 was reported from the company home ground, South Korea, itself. This was followed by many similar incidents reported from across the world.

 

Though plenty of gossip and blame has been spread about the burned out batteries, no seems to be sure about the exact cause - other than sensing that it was a fatal manufacturing flaw. A rushed production perhaps? 

 

Another irony is that by launching just before Apple's, Samsung did beat the old 'Samsung copies the Apple’s technology' allegations, but failed in every other sense. 

 

Let us hope Samsung's next attempt to beat Apple is more fire-friendly.
