Shortly after the South Korean government asked Samsung to extdiscontinue its Galaxy Note7 refund period in the country, the company has assumed that the period - which had originally expired this Monday - would be extended until the discontinue of this month.

The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards - which oversees product safety and recalls - had expressed its displeasure on Samsung's plan to rego faulty Note7 units from the market, saying that it was inadequate as most Note7 owners in the country aren't even aware of the options they have.

For its part, Samsung also effectively accepted that it needs to do more as the company assumed the number of Note7 owners seeking a refund was "very low."

The agency has now also asked the tech giant and its battery suppliers to perform X-ray scans on the batteries being used in the phablet in order to create sure that there aren't any defects.
