Samsung has said that it’s going to exchange its potentially dangerous Galaxy Note 7 units for non-faulty phones, and now the company’s Australian arm has detailed how its customers will be able to identify a new Note 7.
Samsung Australia explains that its new Galaxy Note 7 units will have identifiers on their packaging so that you can tell that they’re new units. Specifically, there will be a small black square in the corner of the white barcode label, as well as a white sticker with a blue “S.”
In addition to those packaging identifiers, Samsung Australia says that it’ll offer an online database so that consumers can check the IMEI of their device so that they don’t need the packaging to identify their device. This database will go live on Sept. 13. Australian consumers will also be able to call Samsung and check their device’s IMEI that way.
Samsung today confirmed that it’s working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on an official recall of the Note 7. While Samsung’s U.S. division hasn’t announced how it’ll enable its customers to check whether their Note 7 is dangerous or not, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see similar identifiers and an IMEI database offered in the U.S. and other regions, too. These would give all Samsung Note 7 owners multiple ways to check if their phone is potentially dangerous.
