Samsung launched theGalaxy Note 7 a couple of months back and it was one of the best flagships the company produced, in terms of sales. However, everything went downhill for the company when reports regarding exploding Galaxy Note 7 units started to emerge from all over the world and this forced Samsung to issue a worldwide recall of all affected units and offered new and “safe” replacement units to all affected customers. The explosions were traced back to the battery in the device which happened to be faulty. It has been over a month since the South Korean company issued the recall for over 2.5 million devices and the flagship phablet has since been put back on sale in South Korea onOctober 1.
Since resuming sales, the firm has reported that it has managed to sell over 30,000 Galaxy Note 7 units in the country over the weekend. However, a significant number of those sold are actually from the pre-orders which the company received before the recall and weren’t able to fulfill during that period due to the recall. Still, being able to sell 10,000 Galaxy Note 7 units a day is still considered quite a “hit” in the ever competitive smartphone industry. The new units which are being sold in South Korea at the moment, come with a battery which is not faulty. On top of that, the new units will come with a green battery indicator, unlike faulty units which come with a white battery indicator.
Samsung resumed the sale of the Galaxy Note 7 on October 1 as it predicted that over 80 percent of the affected units will be returned by then. However, it is unknown whether the company managed to hit that target before resuming sales in the country. If you currently have a faulty Galaxy Note 7 unit in your possession at the moment, it is highly advised that you avoid turning it on or charging it, instead, head over to your point of purchase and seek a replacement unit. This is to avoid any explosions from potentially happening to your device which might cause bodily injuries to you or even damage personal property.
