The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was pulled from shelves mere weeks after it was launched after a global recall was put into effect. This was done by the South Korean company after reports regarding explosions of units while being charged emerged. The exchange program is slated to commence today in the US, and it is rumored that devices will be put back on shelves sometime in October in the US. However, that might not be the case according to Verizon's website.
If you head over to Verizon's website, you will be able to purchase a new Galaxy Note 7 unit from the website. According to the description on the product, the Galaxy Note 7 was previously recalled on September 9 by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to a faulty battery. However, Verizon now has the new unit which comes with a battery that isn't faulty and it has also been approved by the CPSC. The Galaxy Note 7 is available for purchase from the website in three colors, including Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Blue Coral. There also happens to be no shipping delays and you also have the option to pick up your new unit from a Verizon Wireless store on the day itself after ordering one from the website. If you happen to be a Verizon customer, and looking forward to purchasing a Galaxy Note 7 which is not faulty, head over to Verizon's website through the source link below, and pick one up for yourself today.
