[MUSIC] So delicious. What's good, Bryan Tong here with your Googlicious for everything inside the world of Google. And let's start up by catching you up on the latest Galaxy Note 7 development. Now according to a VentureBeat report and a carrier document, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to resume being on sale [MUSIC] In the United States on October the 21st. Now that's a full month after they begin sending out replacement phones. Samsung will start selling the Note 7 in South Korea on September the 28th. But it's still not clear when sales will start back up in other regions. Now, Samsung has officially announced. How consumers will be able to tell the difference between the older Note7 that risk of exploding and the new batch once it's start rolling out. A new green battery icon through software will be visible in three places on the new Note7. One is on the status bar, be always on display screen, and the third the power off front screen. Now black square symbol will also appear on the label of the packaging to indicate this as a new Note7. Plus- You can still use Samsung's IMEI or serial number tool through their website. Now we also wanted to make a correction that last week, the boy that was reportedly burned by a Note 7, was actually burned by a Samsung Core Prime and not a Note 7. The updated information happened after we already posted the show, so we wanted to clear that up. Also, a new report by Bloomberg now claims Samsung rushed the Note 7 launch. To take advantage of rumors of a Dull iPhone in hopes of capitalizing for themselves. It's not one of the biggest setbacks and blunders the Korean giant has ever seen. The report says the top brass of Samsung, including Phone Chief D.J. Koh, decided to accelerate the launch of the Note7. They pushed the pliers to meet tighter deadlines. Despite adding multiple flagship features like their edge-wrapping screen, iris recognition and more powerful and faster charging battery. The Samsung isn't just a phone company. They are literally woven int the culture of South Korea beyond consumer electronics. I've seen it during my time there and it's really a huge blow to their psyche And internally employees have also called this Fiasco humiliating. Now, like I said before it's a damn shame but it can sometimes make for some really good means.
