Heads up to Samsung Note 7 owners!
Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (“Samsung”) has announced earlier this month its replacement mechanics for Samsung Galaxy Note 7, following a global recall from the multinational phone company after some of its units have been reported to have fire-prone batteries.
Samsung said in a letter addressed to the Department of Trade and Industry that the replacement begins on October 1, 2016. The phone company offers replacement options for device owners:
- They may replace their current unit at the store where they originally purchased the smartphone. They need to bring their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 unit, full box, proof of purchase, and one (1) valid ID.
- They may exchange their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to Galaxy S7 Edge starting September 10. Samsung will reimburse the price difference between the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and Note 7.
- For devices purchased through Globe or Smart, owners may communicate with their network providers to exchange their Note 7 to Galaxy S7 edge.
The Samsung Note 7 replacement program will only be until December 31, 2016 and will cover those units purchased before September 7.
