Samsung recently decided to hold back on starting to sell the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea. The company was waiting for more customers to return their handsets as part of the recall.
Now it would appear that sales of the Galaxy Note 7 will resume in South Korea on the 1st of October, the company is expecting to hit 80 percent on its recall by this date.
LG are launching their new LG V20 smartphone in South Korea next week and this could be one of the reasons that Samsung is looking to start selling their handsets again.
The recall of the Note 7 is expected to end up costing Samsung close to $1 billion, the handset was recalled after a number of devices caught fire due to issues with the battery on the device.
