After the entire trouble with Note7, you would have thought that Samsung will abandon the Note brand.
But nope, that’s not true at all, despite initial reports by the Korean Herald. Samsung has let slip its plans for a new upgrade program for all Note7 users.
The Note7 Upgrade Program
In a statement released by Samsung, the company revealed that users who turn in their defective Note7 for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge by 30 Nov 2016 will be eligible for an upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 when they are launched in 2017 at half the price.
This could also be Samsung’s way of trying to attract people to turn in their Note7. It was reported that many Note7 owners are still holding on to their phablets despite it being a danger to them.
The Galaxy S8 is estimated to be released in the first quarter and the Note 8 to be the third quarter of 2017.
Only available in Korea
No, not the phone; the upgrade plan. Currently, only Samsung Galaxy Note7 owners in Korea are eligible for the upgrade.
A Samsung spokesperson said that “the availability of this program will vary by local market and according to the operator and retail partner.”
So keep your fingers crossed, yeah?
