To ensure consumer safety, the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards has ordered Samsung and its battery suppliers to perform X-ray scans on the Galaxy Note 7 batteries. This will ensure that there are no lingering battery cell defects. They have also reached an agreement on the matter of extending the refund deadline. Samsung has confirmed that it’s extending the refund deadline for Galaxy Note 7 customers in its home market until the end of September. The company did say that the number of customers who came in for a refund prior to the Monday deadline was “very low.” Customers in South Korea now also have the option to exchange their Galaxy Note 7 for a different Samsung flagship and receive a refund for the price difference, this is an option that Samsung is already offering to customers in the United States.
