    Or is this just more speculation?
    The Canada replacements are reporting no green battery icon on their replacements.

    'Safe' Galaxy Note 7s may use a different battery icon | Android Central

    More speculation... but even if it is green... who cares. After w week with a s7 edge I am starting to get the shakes. I need my note and my s-pen... never really realized how much I used that stupid thing.

    The decision for the green battery icon was probably a late one so I'm assuming an update will only go out to the brand new note 7s to have this feature.

    Article specifically states battery icon in top right corner. It also says it might only be for the Korean market. I hope they don't do it here. It would look ugly.

    Agreed. It would crap up an otherwise gorgeous device.

    No. It's just a unicorn people are chasing. The Canadian phones are same hardware and software and the green battery is no where to be found.

    As software update will be pushed to the new note 7s to reflect the green battery indicator.

    Can you cite a legitimate source for this? As of now, the green battery thing is a unicorn.

    My favorite thing about the net is how people say random things as fact, but offer no proof or "valid" link. Hearsay is rampant.

    Y'all were saying? I have very credible sources that works in the software development division of the company and i was told it was a confirmed decision at the time.

    P.S nougat development is well underway and going good as far as in being told.

    Here you guys go. Won't come on the phone out the box but there will be a software update on the 21st of September or shortly after. I'm curious has anyone checked there Note 7 and wasn't affected by this battery issue? Samsung most likely figured a sealed back on the phone people won't recognize the cheaper **** batteries installed in the phone. $800 for a brand new phone and this crap happens!

    You may be able to get rid of the green icon with an Odin flash of older firmware. Don't know if Samsung has it rigged up that it'll update automatically again.

    Got my replacement today (US - AT&T). No green battery. I checked for an update and there was none. Only a black square on the box label. Mfr date of 9/12/16 in Korea. If a green icon will get me on a plane, I'll live with it. I have a lot of travel coming up soon.
