The electronics giant made the announcement during a conference call with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission late Thursday.
Samsung Electronics America said Note 7 replacement units will be available in the U.S. at most retail stores by Sept. 21.
“Our collaboration with the CPSC to fast-track a voluntary recall in the U.S. addresses safety concerns by ensuring we reach Note 7 owners quickly to exchange their devices,” Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement.
The Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday that travelers can bring Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones that are under recall onto planes only if they turn off the device, disconnect it from any charging equipment, disable all apps that could inadvertently activate the phone like an alarm and keep the device in a carry-on bag rather than in checked baggage.
