Samsung reveals Galaxy Note series will live on — new flagship will launch in 2017


Just after the whole Galaxy Note7 fiasco, some individuals thought that Samsung would put an end to the Galaxy Observe collection. The electronics giant has misplaced a great deal of revenue thanks to a one defective device, not to point out that the injury this has prompted to its track record will be quite difficult — if not difficult — to restore, so these kinds of a conclusion would make some sense.

Nevertheless, as it turns out, Samsung is not all set to throw in the towel just nonetheless. The Galaxy Observe collection will stay on, due to the fact the organization just announced the introduction of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 in 2017. What is actually much more, Galaxy Note7 clients will be able to get advantage of a unique provide to up grade to a single of its upcoming flagships.

Details are a bit difficult to fully grasp, presented that the announcement is produced in Korean and the translation is a bit rough, but Samsung has prepared a system, known as Galaxy Up grade System, to give Galaxy Note7 clients the possibility of acquiring a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note8 in installments, at what appears to be a reduce in general expense much too: they will have to pay only twelve out of 24 every month installments to get a single of its upcoming flagships.

To get advantage of the system, Galaxy Note7 customers will have to indicator up for it, trade their device for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, and return it, just after the upcoming flagship they want to get launches, in trade for a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note8. The way that the whole issue is explained leads me to feel that Samsung will estimate the price of the traded in device at half the expense of a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note8.

If that does not seem like a wonderful deal that’s due to the fact it may well not be. If you have currently traded in your Galaxy Note7 for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge — this system targets you much too, not just people who have postponed or ignored the trade provide — and can provide it for much more than half of what a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note8 will expense, just after their launch, then you will be superior off likely that route.

To sweeten the deal however Samsung will give system members a fifty p.c price cut, 2 times, to restore (repair or swap) the show on the smartphone enrolled, and precedence for restore visits at its services facilities. Which is an exciting proposition, but it may well not be fairly the unique cure some individuals who acquired burned (practically or figuratively) by the Galaxy Note7 are expecting.

There is no data how this system applies to Galaxy Note7 clients outside South Korea, but Samsung does say that it will end November thirty 2016. So, if it will be accessible internationally, we will find out shortly more than enough.
