SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS: Quote) shares opened up 1 percent on Thursday, rebounding for the first time after three straight days of falls following its decision to permanently end sales of its fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 smartphones.

Samsung shares were trading up 1.3 percent as of 0007 GMT, outperforming the main bourse .KS11 which was largely unchanged from its previous closing level.
