SEOUL - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's investigation into what caused some Galaxy Note 7s to catch fire has concluded that the battery was the main reason, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Monday.

The person said Samsung will likely announce the results of the investigation on Jan. 23 and that the firm will also announce new measures it is taking to avoid a repeat of the product safety failures in its future devices.

Samsung could not be immediately reached for comment.
