Well, the company is working on an OTA software update that should push this fix to all the Galaxy Note 7 sold so far.

According to USA media, all major networks across the pond are now stocking the device again. Samsung will ship 500,000 new Galaxy Note 7 handsets to begin the initial exchange process. AT&T stated that the exchanges are made for those who purchased the Note 7 before September 15. In a video message, Baxter has confirmed that the company replaced 130,000 Galaxy Note 7 in the U.S.

Verizon has announced preorders for new models of the Galaxy Note 7 are now available. Through this software update, you will receive a notification from Samsung advising you to power down your device and avoid charging it.

Samsung did not answer e-mails seeking comment. Consumers may also turn in their old phone and get a full refund.

So how do you tell the new Note 7's from the recalled ones? Samsung also announces that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices will only be available in most stores until September 21 and that users may ask for a different device or a refund instead.

Samsung stopped selling the Note 7 earlier this month due to a battery cell issue after reports of devices catching fire.

If reports are to be believed, Samsung has strategically chose to place its launch date around the festive season in India, which is home to world's second largest smartphone market.

Samsung has taken a big hit for a risky battery defect in its latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 7, and those who rushed to purchase it early have also been paying a hefty price that includes a lot of worrying and frustration.

So far about 25 percent of Note7 owners in the US have reportedly swapped out their devices, mostly requesting Galaxy smartphones rather than a refund, according to the manufacturer.

"We acknowledge the inconvenience this may have caused in the market, but this is to ensure that Samsung continues to deliver the highest quality products to Samsung customers". The phone was overheating, exploding, and creating fires.

While we await more information on the Chinese incident, have you sent back your Galaxy Note 7 to Samsung?
