Samsung Galaxy Note7 Recall Update: 90% Opting For Replacement Rather Than Refund

By 12:03 Fri, 06 Aug 2021 Comments

Samsung began replacing affected Galaxy Note7 units on September 2 and it now reports that about 90% of buyers have opted to switch to recent units where the battery issue has been resolved.

In Singapore, where the recall started only 10 days ago, more than 80% of buyers have sent back affected Note7s. However, in the major US and Korean markets, the recall goes slower - Samsung reports 60% of all recalled units there have been exchanged.

You can confirm a Galaxy Note7 unit is part of the recent batch by looking for a square symbol on the back of its box and at the battery indicator on the phone itself - it's green on the recent ones and white on units that need to be replaced.

Samsung urges the remaining buyers to sdiscontinue back affected units, a recent one will be shipped back to them based on local availability. They can call the store where they purchased the Note7 or a local call center for more details.
