News organization Reuters is reporting that Samsung will soon announce that most of the problems associated with exploding Galaxy Note 7 phones came from faulty batteries.
Samsung has said they will share the official results of their internal investigation around January 23.
The cell phone manufacturer is set to soon announce their upcoming Galaxy S8 device, hoping to mitigate some of the losses from the Note 7 recall, which is estimated to have cost Samsung around $5.2 billion dollars in profit.
Samsung initially recalled millions of Note 7 phones after sporadic reports of overheating and exploding. These phones were later fully recalled and have been prevented on domestic and international flights.
The source told Reuters that Samsung was able to internally replicate the fires during its investigation but couldn't pin the cause on the hardware design.
