two weeks after launch,The firm said on Friday it had identified a problem in the manufacturing process of a battery supplier it didn’t name.“I am working to straighten out our quality control process” Samsung’s mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said then The scale of the unprecedented recall which some analysts forecast will cost Samsung nearly $5 billion in revenue this year follows a separate supply-chain management issue that led to disappointing sales of the Galaxy S6 series last year Samsung executives said production problems for the curved screens and metal casings used in the Galaxy S6 edge led to a supply shortage for the device leaving the firm unable to capitalise on the critical acclaim the phone received sapping earnings momentum GETTING AHEAD Counterpoint analyst Jeff Fieldhack said Samsung stole the thunder from local rival LG Electronics’ launch of the G5 smartphone this year by starting the sales of the Galaxy S7 smartphones a month earlier and backing them with an aggressive marketing campaign “I believe they were trying to create a similar effect by beating Apple to market by (about) a month too” he said “Very often lab times and testing periods are shrunk to expedite approval and time-to-market of key devices It is possible all charging scenarios were not thoroughly tested” Also read: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall needs to be ‘official’ says Consumer Reports Samsung SDI one of two makers of batteries for the Note 7 – the other has not been identified – said it had not received notice from Samsung Electronics regarding its batteries and declined to comment further including whether its batteries were found to be faulty The company declined to comment on a local media report that it had production difficulties and struggled to meet orders in time While there are occasional reports of phones catching fire or burning users recalls for such problems are rare The problem is exacerbated by the fact that batteries in the Galaxy Note 7 can not be removed by the user – a design decision to make the phones slimmer and waterproof A Samsung executive who declined to be named told Reuters before the recall announcement: “Our production engineers and managers are extremely experienced and if you ask them to find a solution to adopt a design change they’d promptly bring things under control “But even that capability is under growing strain as we try out new materials and everything is on a very tight schedule” Local brokerage Korea Investment cut its third-quarter operating profit forecast for Samsung by 11 trillion won to 71 trillion won due to the recall though it said the event would not derail the broader rebound of its smartphone business If haste contributed to the problem it could now help Samsung limit the impact

savouries and curries keep the Bengali sensualist in exceptionally good spirits (especially since we are well known for our dour disposition otherwise) What makes the winter menu so special is that it

laddoo from Jay Nagar South 24 Parganas They appeared with the first mist of the season at sweet shops and doorsteps courtesy the wandering vendors and thoughtful guests They disappeared at the first warming (Source: Wriju) Much has changed in the way this signature winter sweet is produced and marketed well beyond its best-by date But if you have had the privilege of tastingthe original succulent Joy Nagarer Mowa you will know that no cheaper alternative no artificial essence can ever recreate this golf-ball-sized wonder First introduced in the 1920s this soft velveteen laddoo is an elegant marriage of ingredients unique to the region and the season So you have nolen gur – date palm jaggery that is used to flavour sweets and kheer in winter – and puffed rice from Kanakchur variety of grain which is harvested only at this time of the year with posto (poppy seeds) – Bengali cuisine’s most popular calling card (Also read:A sumptuous Chicken Kabiraji: It’s when Armenia meets Bengal) Because of the elusive ingredients (apparently date palm trees are disappearing and yield of the Kanakchur rice have been slumping too) the original Mowa was tough to find or reproduce at home It was even tougher to store it because the blue-blooded Mowa had no chemicals or preservatives to add to its short shelf life On hindsight maybe it was the Mowa’s elusiveness that made it so attractive

Think you are in culinary heaven (Source: Wriju) Koraishuntir kochuri is a sort of puri or soft kachori with green peas fillingPurists (yours truly included) would scoff the idea of frozen supermarket peas to make this kochuri -it tastes best when the season’s sweetest and freshest green peas have been shelled the previous evening (in the backdrop of the loud Bengali soaps) mashed and seasoned and tempered in the kadhai with hing and occasional green chilly And since food pairing is very important in Bengali cuisine (we believe certain varieties of dals are wedded to certain kinds of veggie dishes we are THAT obsessive) you should know that the koraishuntir kochuri the king of winter brunches is best mated with a semi-dry spicy and sweet aloo dum with seasonal baby potatoes garnished

Everything from a simple oil-ginger-turmeric and nigella flavoured curry to a more seasonal cauliflower and potato gravy is laid out to welcome this aggressive and flavourful little fella Bit of an acquired taste – it takes a while to negotiate the bones and get to the sweet flesh – the koi is as much a winter classic in Bengali households as are the badminton sessions in the evenings and family
