Samsung Investigation Blames Battery Size for Galaxy Note 7 Fires

An investigation into the cause of faulty batteries that led Samsung Electronics Co. to pull all of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones last year found that some batteries were irregularly sized, causing overheating, while others had manufacturing problems, according to people familiar with the matter.

Not exactly a surprise, but the full report will be out on Monday.  However, strong sales in phone components are more than helping Samsung through the recall of the Galaxy Note 7, which in turn happens to be bringing more investment to component manufacturing in Texas.  So it seems Samsung will end up benefitting from a surprise repositioning as purveyors of everything BUT the battery.
