Samsung said on September 27 it has recovered more than 60% of all Galaxy Note 7 smartphones sold in South Korea and the United States that have been recalled.

The Korean company’s recall came ahead of the iPhone7 announcement last week, but questions now remain on Samsung’s R&D department’s rush to release the device.

In a statement, Samsung said it was focused on replacing all affected devices “as quickly and efficiently” as possible and reiterated its request that customers affected by the current recall should power off their device and turn them in, according to Reuters.

Samsung in Iran has also announced a recall of the phone in the local market due to several businesses bringing the phone in prior to its official release date. The South Korean firm announced on September 2 a global recall of at least 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in 10 markets due to faulty batteries causing some phones to catch fire.
