Samsung has already started replacing the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with faulty batteries with a new one in some countries like the US and Canada. The replacement of the said device in the Philippines will happen beginning October 1. The company did some very few changes for a customer to know if the Galaxy Note 7 is the new and non-exploding one.
So, how to identify a new Samsung Galaxy Note 7? The company has introduced a Green battery icon that has been included in three specific software changes. The new green battery icon will be visible on: 1) the Status Bar; 2) the Always On Display screen; and 3) the Power Off prompt screen, which can be accessed by long-pressing the power key.
Additionally, users can easily check if they are using the new Galaxy Note7 by looking for a square symbol on the label of the packaging box as below.
