Samsung will release its report into the Galaxy Note 7 disaster that saw the flagship phablet plagued by fire risks and eventually scrapped from sale in 2016 next week.
However, early rumours have said the report will lay the blame squarely on the battery, as was widely speculated, as reported by Reuters.
The source confirms that Samsung was able to recreate the fires in test conditions and that there was nothing explainable by the design or firmware.
However, it seems the issue did not stem from the battery itself but the design of the handset that did not provide enough space around the battery. This is because even after Samsung switched suppliers for the Note 7's battery the issue persisted.
The official reveal of the report is due next week before Samsung Q4 results are announced and are expected to be appended with a whole bunch of ways that the company intends to stop the same incident again.
Samsung will need to ensure consumers remain sold on the firm's wares and are convinced that the Note 7 incident was a one-off, as it has a lot pinned on the success of the Galaxy S8 that is due to be unveiled later this year, possibly after Mobile Wold Congress.
