Samsung installing special Galaxy Note 7 exchange booths inside airports

Bigwig South Korean device maker Samsung has intensified its efforts to recall all the units of its ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 handset.

In a recent announcement, Samsung has revealed that special booths are being installed by the company inside airports in the US, Australia, and South Korea, to enable the users of the potentially-explosive Galaxy Note 7 handsets to submit their devices and get them exchanged with other handsets.

The special booths which Samsung is setting up at airports are being called "customer service points" by the company. At the booths, Samsung will have a customer representative who will help Galaxy Note 7 users wanting to get their handsets exchanged, so that they can avoid violating a serious federal ban pre-flight.

Galaxy Note 7 users who surrender their handsets for exchange at the "customer service points" will be given replacement handsets -- most likely the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones -- immediately on-site.

According to an official notice released by Samsung, a total of seven "customer service points" are being installed by the company in Australia. Six of these special booths will open from 6 a. m. to 8 p. m. local time, while one - in Canberra - will be open from 6 a. m. to 6 p. m. in due course, more "customer service points" will be set up by Samsung in additional airports.
