Samsung has finally managed to deal with the whole Note 7 recall issue up to an extent. Now after all these months, the replacements units are said to arrive by the month end. And the same was confirmed by the company executive in an official video, where he apologised for this unfortunate incident. So if you have been waiting for your device, then you should be getting a notification from the company soon on the availability of the device.

There are certain things to look for if you want to make sure that your device is safe. We now have new reports claiming that these new replacement units will come with a black square mark on the box at the back. Well, it was first reported that these units would come with a Blue ‘S’ mark on the back. Also, it has been reported that these new units don’t have the green battery indicator as well, which was reported earlier. This makes things a little bit sketchy.

Consumers are now confused with all these multiple reports and different indications. Well, if you want to make sure that your device is safe, then head over to Samsung’s website and check with your IMEI number. You can see if your device is safe or not, and you can get them replaced accordingly. Not the best method in the world, but still a good way to ensure that you are safe. So don’t worry about the blue ‘S’ mark or the green battery indicator. Just get your replacement unit and check with the website.

And if for some reason you wish to back off and don’t want to use the device at all, then you can get a Samsung Galaxy S7 device or a get a full refund for your device as well with the exchange program that the company announced in the US. As far as India is concerned, the replacement units are expected to arrive at the same time, so stay tuned for more detailed info.
