Samsung details how you can identify the new Galaxy Note 7


Last updated: September 19th, 2016 at 12:07 UTC+02:00

Samsung has finally started replacing Galaxy Note 7 units that have faulty batteries with those that don’t. There’s nothing different about the new stock other than the battery which is now being sourced from a different supplier. Samsung has now detailed the steps through which you can identify the “New Galaxy Note 7.”

As previously reported, units in the new inventory feature a green battery icon. Samsung says that the icon is going to be visible in three locations: the Status Bar, the Always On Display screen as well as the Power Off prompt screen. The retail box of the new inventory also features a black square symbol which immediately lets you know that the handset inside does not have a faulty battery. Samsung has once again reiterated its commitment to the safety of customers and has urged Galaxy Note 7 owners across the globe to immediately participate in the replacement program.
