(NEWS10) – Replacements of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 will be available Wednesday.
Regulators recalled the smartphone last week after dozens of people reported that the Note 7 caught fire while charging.
Samsung also suspended sales of the phone September 2. The fires were traced to a battery problem believed to affect 1.1% of the 2.5 million phones sold worldwide since August.
Note 7 users stateside have been told to pick up their free replacement from Samsung, their wireless carrier or the store where they bought the phone.
