[THE INVESTOR] Samsung Electronics is recalling all Galaxy Note 7 phones sold globally, exchanging the phones with new ones regardless of battery functions. 

The Korean tech giant announced the plan on Sept. 2 in Seoul after a series of battery explosions since the phone's launch on Aug. 2. 

About 1 million units have been sold globally. The company said it has found 24 phones with faulty batteries in its recent investigation into the explosions.
