Samsung to resume Note 7 Sales in South Korea from 28th September
Samsung’s newest flagship the Note 7 has been in controversy due to battery explosions and a total recall. The world’s largest smartphone maker halted the global rollout of its new phone on Sept. 2 after reports of the devices catching fire. Since then, Samsung has been scrambling to recall and replace 2.5 million Note 7s it had already sold.
Sales will resume in its home market on Sept. 28 and in other countries when conditions allow, a company spokeswoman said. The phone is coming back to its home market, South Korea, on September 28th. The fire risk has prompted warnings from authorities not to use the phones on planes, trains and buses.
Samsung plans to start providing new “battery-problem-free” Note 7 phones to current owners in South Korea on Monday. It also plans to issue a software fix that will prevent the batteries from charging above 60% of capacity.
