Last year, Note 7 consumers filed the suit with the Seoul Central District Court seeking a combined 935 million won($822,000) in compensation.
Among others, they claimed that they have experienced inconveniences, which caused several visits to after-sales service centers in person at their own expense and time for battery check-ups and exchanges.
The South Korean tech giant announced the global recall of the controversial handset in September last year due to reports of some handsets catching fire while charging. The device first went on sale on Aug. 19.
Samsung Electronics refunded Galaxy Note 7 owners, and those who did not want a full refund got any other Samsung phone model in exchange. In October, Samsung suspended the production of the Galaxy Note 7. (Yonhap)
