Samsung now with replacements for its recalled smartphone.
FOX's Lisa Lacerra reports:
New Galaxy Note 7 smartphones will be available in the U.S. to replace about one million of the phones that are being recalled because their batteries can catch fire.
Last week Samsung announced customers in the U.S. who purchased a recalled phone could either replace it or get a refund after receiving harsh criticism from the Consumer Product Safety Commission for not immediately recalling the phones.
Samsung saying it's pushing out two software updates through wireless carriers. One will show a green battery icon to confirm that the Note 7 is a new one that doesn't have the battery problem. The other will display a short notice to owners of older phones, telling them to turn it off and take it in for a replacement.
