The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be available for pre-order before it releases in South Africa in November.
Samsung said it decided not to release the Note 7 in South Africa in September after multiple reports of battery fires resulted in a mass recall of the device.
It added that a software update to help reduce the risk of incidents relating to the battery issues – which limits maximum charge to 60% – was implemented in markets where the device had been distributed.
“As the Note 7 has not yet officially been launched in South Africa, this will not be applicable to the South African market. South African customers will receive the Note 7 that offers full battery usage,” said Samsung.
