On January 2 Patently Apple posted a report titled "Note7 Probe Results due this Month While Samsung Admits that Growth will lag in 2017 Due to Tough Competition." Shin Jong-kyun, the CEO and board member in charge of the company's mobile business stated at the time that the government and Samsung had concluded the cause of the Note7 problems were not a simple battery malfunction, and the two sides were fine-tuning details to reach the final outcome. It's being revealed today that the results of multiple investigations will be made public in a press conference in Seoul on Monday morning local time, Sunday night in the U.S. and Canada.


Samsung's official press release dated today states that "Samsung Electronics, as well as independent expert organizations who conducted their own investigations into various aspects of the Galaxy Note7 incidents, will share their findings.


In addition, Samsung will discuss the new measures the company has implemented in response to the incidents. The full press conference will be available via live-stream globally, and can be accessed through


Many news sites, including the Wall Street Journal, are trying to get ahead of Sunday's revelations by claiming that their sources have revealed that Samsung will say that SDI used an irregularly sized battery that didn't fit the case properly causing the overheating.


Once the SDI battery was replaced with those from China's Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), "the flaw centers on a manufacturing issue resulting from the quick ramp-up in production of replacement phones. It wasn't clear what the manufacturing issues were," and perhaps this is an area of the investigation that might be revealed on Sunday.


The WSJ report further noted that "To address regulators' concerns about how Samsung would avoid any future battery problems, the company has created an eight-step process that includes more testing, inspections and manufacturing-quality assurances, among other measures."


The outside firms hired to produce the independent reviews were U.S.-based companies UL LLC and Exponent which examined the batteries, while a German firm, TUV Rheinland, analyzed supply-chain issues.
