Samsung says that it will announce the cause of the Note 7 “incidents” as well as the “quality enhancement plan” that it’s put in place following the fires.

Ever since it recalled and discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 last year, Samsung has been fairly quiet about what caused the phones to overheat and catch fire. There’s been speculation that the battery was the main culprit, but that’s about all that we know about the situation so far. The good news is that it won’t be long before Samsung’s findings are revealed and we’ll finally know why one of the most well-received smartphones of 2016 ended up getting discontinued.
