For some time now we have been talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, it didn’t have fantastic launch and it didn’t even get a launch in the UK, however, that will soon change.
Samsung claims to have successfully fixed the problem that was causing the Note 7 to spontainuously combust, and is ready to begin shipping these new safe models around the world, and replacing the unsafe devices that they have already shipped in some regions.
In particular, the UK and Europe will be getting these new safe Note 7’s from October 28th according to Samsung, who confirmed the new date in a press-release today.
The CEO of Samsung Electronics Europe, David Loses said the following about it:
“We have worked hard to bring replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones to Europe so we can ensure the safety of our customers and minimise their inconvenience.”
“We would like to thank our customers for their patience and loyalty to Samsung and the Galaxy Note 7. For our remaining customers, we urge them to act now, exchange the device and get a brand new Galaxy Note 7 today.”
Anyone who received a Galaxy Note 7 before this date will be able to exchange their faulty device for a direct replacement and anyone who has yet to pick up one of the new devices and feel alright about it.
Samsung has said that 57 percent of European Note 7s have already been exchanged, with 90 percent of those customers choosing to get another Note 7.
