Total Recall puts "explosions" behind it

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 is available for purchase again, at least in South Korea, and other regions across the globe will see the re-launch of the device in the coming weeks.

According to the company, the return to sales follows a successful replacement programme, which saw strong consumer response with many exchanging the older Note 7 with a new brand new one or other Galaxy handsets.

Samsung said it has implemented three specific software changes in the new phones. The new Notes now feature a green battery icon located on the status bar, Always On Display screen and the power off prompt screen, which can be accessed by long pressing the power key. Additionally, users can check if they are using the latest Note by a square symbol on the phone's packaging.

"As the company introduces new Galaxy Note 7 devices to the market, Samsung continues to strongly encourage all Galaxy Note 7 users who have not yet participated in the exchange programme to immediately do so by contacting their place of purchase or calling a designated local call centre as soon as possible," the company said.
