As Samsung continues pressing further recalls for its defective and exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices around the world, it’s also finalizing new units that will be shipped to replace each and every one of them.

Plans in Australia have new units out by next week while the US is getting an “expedited” treatment. How sped up? Maybe a hint could be found in responses from Samsung Canada as it is working to replace about 22,000 units in the country.

Customers were asked — and encouraged by Health Canada — to register for a Note 7 exchange program. Once that was done, users received an email penned by Paul Brannen, Samsung Canada COO and Executive Vice President of Mobile Solutions.

“We have received your registration through the Samsung Exchange Process and we anticipate that your device will begin to ship starting as early as Thursday, September 19th,” the email read in part.

Commenters to MobileSyrup’s story say their estimates ranged to as early as tomorrow, the 15th.
