Customers can either exchange current Galaxy Note 7 device with a new Galaxy Note 7 as early as next week or they can exchange current Galaxy Note 7 for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and replacement of any Note 7 specific accessories with a refund of the price difference between devices.
It will do so as soon as this weekend after its investigation on explosion claims found batteries were at fault. Samsung was conducting the inspection with its partners. Shipments of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone were delayed in South Korea this week for extra quality control testing. The move came after reports that batteries in some of the jumbo smartphones exploded while they were being charged.
By skipping the Note 6, Samsung’s Note 7 will complement the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and will unify the product portfolio. Adorning a 5.7inch QHD AMOLED display, the Note 7 will be available in two variants – one powered by Snapdragon 820 and the other running on Exynos 8890 chipset – with 4GB of RAM. The device will have 64GB of internal storage with support for expandable memory of up to 256GB.
