After this saga of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units exploding first started to gain traction, the company issued a recall for their devices already out with users and they assured other prospective users that they would try to resume sales soon so that they can get the Note 7 experience too.
In their home country of South Korea, they had initially set the date for the resumption of sales to be the 28th of September but the company is now pushing that further back and they have cited cogent reasons for this development.
According to official information, they have done this so that their recall programme can be effective given that less than half of the users of the phone in the country have been the ones to register their units for replacement. They have also made a logical prediction that should sales resume now, it would be hard to follow up perfectly with the recall and replacement programme.
Also, heeding to the voice of the government, they have extended the date for refunds till 30th September.
