With the Galaxy Note7’s global replacement program well underway, Samsung Electronics has announced that new Galaxy Note7 devices will soon be available for purchase in markets across the globe. Sales of the new Galaxy Note7 commenced on October 1 in Korea, and will follow suit in markets worldwide in the coming weeks.
On September 30, the eve of the resumption of Galaxy Note7 sales, Samsung opened Galaxy Note7 experience zones in a number of locations across Korea. The experience zones allowed people to enjoy the device’s best-in-class productivity, security and entertainment features, and attracted large crowds of consumers eager to get their hands on the Galaxy Note7.
“Along with the several other experience zones showcasing Samsung’s latest product, guests have crowded our Galaxy Note7 experience zone since this morning,” said Junghyun Kim, Manager of the Seoul-based Samsung D’light shop. “We found that many people are excited to check out the iris scanner, the new S Pen features, such as S Translator, and the camera,” he continued. “Many existing Galaxy Note7 users have already visited and exchanged their phones for a new Galaxy Note7 or other Galaxy device, and more and more people are inquiring about purchasing the Galaxy Note7.”
To help users enjoy their Galaxy Note7 with complete confidence, Samsung has implemented three specific software changes affecting the battery indication. The new Galaxy Note7 features a green battery icon that’s visible on the Status Bar, the Always On Display screen and the Power Off prompt screen—accessed by long-pressing the power key. Additionally, users can easily verify that they’re using the latest Galaxy Note7 by looking for a square symbol on the label of the phone’s packaging.
The Galaxy Note7 was designed to help users do more than they may have thought possible with a smartphone, featuring a 5.7-inch curved QHD Super AMOLED display perfect for both productivity and entertainment, as well as the ever-versatile S Pen, which is much more than just a writing tool. The phone’s iris-scanning technology, backed by Samsung’s defense-grade Knox platform, introduces a new standard in mobile security, while IP68 water resistance affords users more freedom to utilize their phone’s innovative features.
Customer safety remains Samsung’s highest priority. As the company introduces new Galaxy Note7 devices to the market, Samsung continues to strongly encourage all Galaxy Note7 users who have not yet participated in the exchange program to immediately do so by contacting their place of purchase or calling a designated local call center as soon as possible.
