It's official — the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now available across the globe again.
This time around, the new units are expected to be free of issues, including but not limited to overheating and batteries draining quickly. However, the most important fix of all, they will no longer explode.
For the record, the South Korean company has already shipped out the handsets to authorized retailers, carriers and other partners, and it's safe to assume that adverts regarding this relaunch will soon become widespread.
Before this development, it should be pointed out that Samsung already resumed sales of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea on Oct. 1, with the smartphone maker vigorously promoting it at experience zones in its home country.
New Battery Indicators To Distinguish Safe Galaxy Note 7 Units
To assure users that the device they get are safe and non-exploding, the company included a new battery indicator: a green battery icon on the Status Bar, the Always On display and the Power Off screen, which pops up when the power key is pressed and held.
The Galaxy Note 7 Is Still Flying Off Shelves
Now, despite all the hubbub surrounding the phablet, it appears that the consumers' interest in it didn't dwindle down that much.
"Many existing Galaxy Note 7 users have already visited and exchanged their phones for a new Galaxy Note 7 or other Galaxy device, and more and more people are inquiring about purchasing the Galaxy Note 7," Junghyun Kim, manager of Samsung D'light shop in Seoul, says.
Since the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus aren't rolling out as efficiently as Apple has hoped to meet the demand, the Galaxy Note 7 may still have a fighting chance to win back the market after all the issues and pressure it has been through.
A Quick Look Back At The Massive Recall
For the uninitiated, Samsung had to stop sales and issue an unprecedented global recall of the smartphone when units started to catch fire because of faulty batteries.
Those who bought it early are advised to turn their devices in and claim one of the models in the new, safe batch as soon as possible via their carrier, retailer where they bought it or Samsung itself.
