Samsung Electronics has announced that new Galaxy Note7 devices will soon be available for purchase in markets across the globe under the Galaxy Note7’s global replacement program. Sales of the new Galaxy Note7 commenced on October 1 in Korea, and will follow suit in markets worldwide in the coming weeks.
To help users enjoy their Galaxy Note7 with complete confidence, Samsung has implemented three specific software changes affecting the battery indication. The new Galaxy Note7 features a green battery icon that’s visible on the Status Bar, the Always On Display screen and the Power Off prompt screen—accessed by long-pressing the power key. Additionally, users can easily verify that they’re using the latest Galaxy Note7 by looking for a square symbol on the label of the phone’s packaging.
On September 30, the eve of the resumption of Galaxy Note7 sales, Samsung opened Galaxy Note7 experience zones in a number of locations across Korea. The experience zones allowed people to enjoy the device’s best-in-class productivity, security and entertainment features, and attracted large crowds of consumers eager to get their hands on the Galaxy Note7.
Customer safety remains Samsung’s highest priority. As the company introduces new Galaxy Note7 devices to the market, Samsung continues to strongly encourage all Galaxy Note7 users who have not yet participated in the exchange program to immediately do so by contacting their place of purchase or calling a designated local call center as soon as possible.
