Samsung airport exchange

Samsung has begun setting up booths in US airports for customers to turn in their now banned Galaxy Note 7 phablets for replacement devices.

The booths, which have been spotted at San Francisco International Airport, allow anyone who still has the recalled device to hand it in. This after the TSA ruled that it was illegal to carry the banned handset on board planes – even if it had been turned off – due to the possibility of explosion.

The booths will be placed ahead of the security checkpoints, and customers can transfer all data to the unspecified replacement devices Samsung reps are handing out. ®
