If you are still holding on to your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, this is probably a good time to have it replaced at Samsung, as the Korean phone maker sets to power down the device indefinitely this December 31.
Samsung had previously tried to convince users who are still holding on to the Note 7 to replace their device – which had numerous reports of catching fire – by limiting the battery to only 30%. After December 31 however, all phones will be rendered useless as all devices will be powered down to 0%.
A push notification has been sent out by Samsung Malaysia to all Samsung phones in the country, in order to remind Note 7 users to backup their device and hopefully have their devices replaced.
Commenting on the matter, a Samsung Malaysia representative has confirmed the matter and is urging all Note 7 owners who still has not returned the device to do so before the final power down.
As it stands, all Galaxy Note 7 devices are still eligible for return for a full refund, or an exchange to the Galaxy S7 edge. Current Galaxy Note 7 users should call Samsung Malaysia’s care line at 1-800-88-7799 for assistance.
