On September 2, Samsung officially announced its recall of all 2.5 million Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units sold until that point. As you surely know by now, this has to do with the batteries in some of these phones being prone to overheating and catching fire.

After that announcement, Samsung and its partners stopped selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, understandably. Replacement units for those who had received the phablet prior to September 2 are already on the way in some places (and will reach more countries next week).
But what about people who didn’t grab a faulty Samsung Galaxy Note 7 but would want to purchase a safe one? There’s a date they can look forward to now. Samsung will resume sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on September 28 in South Korea, as well as “other countries when conditions allow”, according to a company spokeswoman.
So probably, in early October the handset will be on sale again in most territories. Hopefully, by then, all the possibly faulty devices would have been replaced.
