All devices that are handed in from the 19th September will be replaced according to the South Korean company.
A statement by Samsung said, “Our customers’ safety is an absolute priority. Until a replacement device is provided, Samsung asks all customers with a Galaxy Note 7 smartphone to power down your device and return it to its place of purchase at your earliest opportunity”
Many airline passengers have been warned to not bring their Samsung phones on board after these reports as it could be a hazard to airline staff and passengers.
