Samsung Gives Up on ATL Batteries for Note 8 After Exploding Phones Disaster
Samsung is now giving the finishing touches to the Galaxy Note 8, and with the device just around the corner, the company is making some changes that should help make the phablet one of the safest ever.
One of these changes is giving up on ATL, the company that built part of the batteries used by Samsung on the Galaxy Note 7 and which have been at fault for devices bursting into flames and eventually triggering a worldwide recall of the device.
A report from ET News indicates that Samsung will work exclusively with its own Samsung SDI and Japan’s Murata Manufacturing for battery units on the Galaxy Note 8 phablet, with the upcoming Galaxy S9 due in the spring of 2018 also likely to stick with these two manufacturers. Samsung has already given up on its deal with ATL for the Galaxy S8 series launched earlier this year.
