A few days from now, April 21 to be exact, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will arrive in the U.S. market. With these latest mobile devices, Samsung will try to recover from the nightmare brought about by Galaxy Note 7. But in one of the most compelling revelations about Samsung Galaxy S8+, the said 6.2-inch smartphone is said to have the same battery specs as that of Galaxy Note 7.

Same Battery Specifications

Just recently, a teardown of Samsung Galaxy S8+ and what they have found out gave chills to those who have read the article. As tech website iFixit posted, the battery of Samsung Galaxy S8+ looks the same as that of the defective Galaxy Note 7.

"Let's hope that Samsung's improved testing procedures are what the Note7 was missing, because this design looks about the same to us," the report suggested. Going deep within the Samsung Galaxy S8+, "Even with the battery fully removed, the glue won't let go. The S8+ features a 13.48 Wh (3500 mAh at 3.85 V) battery-the exact same capacity as the Note7, and a little less than the S7 Edge's 13.86 Wh."

Battery Issues

Back in January, Samsung released its final report on the investigation of Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The investigation concluded that two separate battery flaws and not with the phone itself is the source of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco as posted by Recode.

Samsung revealed that their investigation involved 700 dedicated staff testing 200,000 phones and 30,000 additional batteries. The result of Samsung's investigation was validated by three outside firms, namely: UL, Exponent and Germany's TUV Rheinland.

Samsung mobile head DJ Koh said that this served as a wakeup call for Samsung opportunity to improve safety of lithium-ion. He also asked the entire industry to be very vigilant about testing the said component and other components manufactured by subsidiaries especially those bought outside.
