Following the Note7’s global replacement program, Samsung has officially relaunched the Galaxy Note7 across the globe. The company has announced that the new Galaxy Note7 units will soon be available for purchase in markets worldwide and already has been shipped to all partners, retailers, and carriers. Sales of the new Galaxy Note7 has started on October 1 in Korea, and will follow the rest of the world in coming weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 sales were halted because of the the isolated battery cell issues. The company has started recalling all Galaxy Note7 units around the world under the product Exchange Program for the owners. The product exchange program is still active, if you are an owner of the older Galaxy Note7 unit and didn’t get your replacement, you should act fast by contacting their place of purchase or calling a designated local call center.
To identify the new and safe Galaxy Note7 units, Samsung has implemented three specific software changes affecting the battery indication:
- A square symbol on the label of the phone’s packaging of the new Galaxy Note7 units.
- 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.
The all new Galaxy Note7 is back into the business and is directly competing the newly launched Apple’s iPhone 7. So it’s not gonna be a easy game for the Note7 to get it’s reputation back. But backing some premium specs such as – a 5.7-inch curved QHD Super AMOLED display, the ever-versatile S Pen, iris-scanning technology and the IP68 water resistance – the game may not be completely lost for the Galaxy Note7 just yet.
