The new Galaxy Note7 devices went on sale in South Korea on 1 October and the global replacement program in regions where the smartphone was already in the market is well underway.
“Consumers will be able to purchase the new Galaxy Note7 on 11 November in South Africa. These devices are completely safe to use and present no battery cell issues,” says Craige Fleischer, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.
Samsung has implemented three specific software changes affecting the battery indication.
The Galaxy Note7 has a 5.7-inch curved QHD Super AMOLED display and the well known S Pen.
“Samsung would also like to take this opportunity to thank its loyal customers for their patience and understanding during the past couple of weeks. Your loyalty and support for the brand is valued,” Fleischer concludes. ITWebAfrica
