The Galaxy Note 7 recall won’t be easy and it won’t be cheap. Samsung is gearing up to replace roughly 2.5 million units, and the first new models should ship to customers around the world starting later this month.
Samsung Australia confirmed on Friday that the replacement Galaxy Note 7 will arrive in the country on September 21. Initial stock is reserved for anyone who already purchased the device and needs a new unit. Fresh sales for the smartphone will officially resume early next month.
The company also noted that the replacement units will feature an updated white barcode sticker with a blue ‘S’ on the packaging so you can easily identify them. In the meantime, the company recommends that everyone stop using the current Galaxy Note 7. You can return the device immediately and, depending on where you bought it, potentially receive a temporary smartphone while you wait for the official replacement.
SammyHub rounded up all of the recall information from around the world. The site notes that U.S. shipping is already underway, though it’s unclear when the new devices will arrive. The updated Galaxy Note 7 is also set to ship to much of Europe on September 19, including Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain and the U.K.
