Samsung probe blames batteries for fires
jamuna news: Samsung's probe into its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco has found that the overheating and burning of the phones was caused by defective batteries.
The firm had axed its iPhone rival in October last year after an earlier botched recall and re-release.
On Monday, Samsung said that neither software nor hardware other than the batteries were at fault.
The recall is thought to have cost $5.3bn (£4.3bn) and was hugely damaging for the South Korean firm's reputation.
Internal and independent investigations "concluded that batteries were found to be the cause of the Note 7 incidents", the South Korean technology giant said in a statement.
The company said that errors both in design and manufacturing affected batteries by two different manufacturers.
