MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) — Samsung has begun replacing Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea.
The replacement comes on the heels of a recall of the smartphones due to faulty batteries that caused phones to catch fire.
Galaxy Note 7 users in South Korea say they’re pleased with Samsung’s response.
Samsung says it has sold 2.5 million phones equipped with the faulty batteries.
A Samsung spokeswoman said the schedule for restarting sales for the device elsewhere, including the United States, will depend on the circumstances for the individual markets.
