The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 continues to be a burning example, and I mean that literally as well, of how minor design flaws in a device could completely turn the tables for a company. This stands true not only for the way a consumer thinks about the device and the company, but also about how the consumers’ opinions affect the revenue for a company. In the case of Samsung, the damage was considerable and billions lost in the Note 7 mishaps have left an indelible mark on the company’s image.
Nevertheless people continue to put their faith in these companies’ phones and surprisingly so, even after the many casualties that the phone caused and its subsequent ban from airports and planes, where it was treated nothing short of a nuke. Samsung is trying hard to cleanse its reputation by paying close attention to every minute detail in the design of the Samsung Galaxy S8. This ‘no more explosion’ movement has inspired LG as well where the company is working hard to install its upcoming devices with technology that will prevent the devices from facing the same fate as the Note 7.
To make sure that the phone remains cool and thus, free from the risks of explosions, both Samsung and LG are making use of special heat pipes that will take the excess energy and siphon it away from the phone, thus making them safe from explosions. These thermal pipers are made in Auras Technology and Chuan Chon technology, both out of Taiwan, in China. LG will also be working towards the same goal, but will be bringing in these goods from Furukawa Electric in Japan and Delta Electronic in Taiwan. Other sources claim that in case of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the heat pipes will be the same as those of the S7. But this theory has been debunked by others who claim that the same heat pipes were used in the Note 7 and yet there was an explosion issue. Nothing can really be ascertained about why the Note 7 design failed unless the investigation reports on the failure of this device are received, which are actually due on Monday.
