In an obvious bid to regain some face after the Galaxy Note 7 "explosiongate" fiasco, Samsung has now published an improve program for former house owners of its short-lived flamable phablet. Referred to as Galaxy Upgrade, this system lets in customers who industry their Galaxy Note 7 in for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 EDGE to obtain an improve to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 once they release subsequent yr.
Apparently, this provides away Samsung's plans for a Galaxy S8, which we already knew about, on the other hand, there have been rumours of the Note collection being deserted, so plans for a Note 8 are rather unexpected.
The improve plan is probably not loose, then again, it's going to imply that customers will most effective pay 50% of the cost of their Galaxy S7 to get the brand new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 on arrival. These days Samsung has best introduced this plan for customers in South Korea.
"In providing the Note 8 improve choice, Samsung not directly strengthened earlier statements that the Note collection may not be discontinued. The corporate stated the supply of one of these program in different markets shall be dependent at the state of affairs in each and every nation. It didn't elaborate," stated a Reuters document.
For this system in South Korea, it's going to be open till November 30 2016 - customers who have already exchanged their Note 7 devices within the area can also be eligible for this system.
"The Galaxy Upgrade program has no per month charges like the prevailing Galaxy Membership program," says a record from SamMobile.
