Earlier, the Samsung boss was accused of bribery charges against an associate of former South Korean President Park Geun-hye to force the merger of Samsung C&T and Chell Industries. For this, Lee spent 18 months in prison before he received a pardon.

Samsung boss bribery charges

During that prison time period, the vice president was restrained from taking his job and a proper title on the company’s representatives. Therefore, he only got reports from company officials but now he can take over his position on the board.

Lee’s pardon will come into effect on August 15, 2022. It’s expected that Lee’s release and his contribution to Samsung will improve the company’s business and so South Korea’s economy. He could make major strategic decisions, ranging from governance reforms and major chipmaking deals.

Samsung is facing several problems due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, weak consumer demand, and supply chain issues that got aggravated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Its semiconductor design and foundry arms have also faced business challenges, and Lee’s pardon would allow him to make decisions quickly to improve the company’s size. It’s worth mentioning that after Lee’s release announcement, Samsung’s shares rose 1.3% in their hometown.

What’s the whole story?

For a few days, a user who was wearing the Apple Watch was feeling uncomfortable, noticed that the watch is getting hotter than before, and also the back of the watch is slightly broken. In addition to this, WatchOS is warning to shut down it again and again due to high temperature.

The user immediately told the whole situation to Apple Support. After diverting several people from the Apple Support team, the call finally came to a manager who only said he will invest but he also did not suggest any solution after this call and the next morning the Watch went off due to an explosion.

Even after the explosion, the user called the Apple Support team and reported the accident. The company arranged for the watch to be taken away and also said that it would be sent to a lab for testing.

Apart from this, the company asked him to sign a document, in which it was written that he would not tell anyone about this incident, but he denied to sign it and informed 9to5Mac about this incident.

Looking at this whole incident, we can say that the Apple support team has made a lot of carelessness, it is good that the user did not wear that watch in his hand at the time of the watch burst. Instead of hiding this, Apple should make other users aware, so that users remain alert and no one is harmed.

Aside from this, the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update took nearly three months to start rolling out for the flagship Samsung devices after the official debut of the base OS version. Seeing the big development with Android 12, we can expect that the company will start providing Android 13 to its flagships starting October this year.

Similar to previous rollouts, the South Korean tech giant will first upgrade its flagship Galaxy smartphones and then tablets. Later on, the company will gradually push the One UI 5.0 update to mid-range and budget phones in different markets globally.
