Samsung has officially announced that it has begun resuming the sale of its 2016 phablet, the Galaxy Note 7 with a new version, from October 1st, in Korea. The company had halted the sale of the device, on September 2nd, before announcing the exchange program.
The new phones are safe to use, and do not suffer from the overheating issues, which made the company recall the devices, for the safety of its users. The company is still accepting the older defective Note 7 units under the exchange program, and says that many users have returned their devices for a new Note 7 or a different Galaxy phone.
Samsung opened its Galaxy Note 7 experience zones on September 30th, in Korea, for fans to test the device hands on. If you have not exchanged your Note 7 for a new one you should take the phone to the store you bought it from, or contact Samsung’s Customer Care to get a replacement device.
Look for a square on the box which the device came in, or the green battery indicator, which is visible on the Status Bar, the Always On Display screen, as shown above, and also on the Power Off prompt screen.
