The Galaxy Note series will have yet another explosive smartphone this year. No, not like the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung is trying hard to fix its tarnished image and will make sure that the Galaxy Note 8 lives up the expectations. It is quite obvious that Samsung will be stuffing the phone with features, but it would be the phone’s safety that will make or break the deal.
All eyes would be towards the Galaxy Note 8 once the Galaxy S8 goes official later this month. Samsung has come up with an 8-point battery test to avoid any situation like the last year’s battery fiasco. Samsung wants to assure the customers that everything is under control and checked while manufacturing the Galaxy Note 8.
With the 8-point battery test, Samsung will do a durability test, visual inspection, X-Ray, charge and discharge test, TVOC test, disassembling test, accelerated usage test and OCV test. If this lengthy list of tests wasn’t enough, the South Korean government will be ensuring the safety of the battery so that it doesn’t explode this time around.
The ministry of Korean Agency for Technology Standards is reportedly expected to make revisions to battery safety and smartphone recall laws. It might require the manufacturer to replace the battery every two years and the time frame will be strictly followed to avoid any delays from the manufacturer’s end.
Amidst all this, the Samsung officials seem quite positive about their upcoming lineup of smartphones. Even after the Galaxy Note 7 mishap, the company assumes the loyalists to stay with them for the next-gen smartphone too, that will be a feature-packed top of the line smartphone to lure even the new ones.
