In an announcement, Samsung indirectly revealed a new phone from the Note line after they said a special promotion awaits customers who bought the Note7, Reuters reported.
If you did get yourself one of those, chances are that you’ve already had your phone refunded or replaced with a Galaxy S7 model.
But now, Samsung is offering South Koreans a chance to exchange their faulty Note7’s for half the price off of an S7 model (regular or edge).
This S7 model can then be swapped for an Galaxy S8 or Note8 model upon their release next year.
However, this offer is only currently available in South Korea and you have to be enrolled in Samsung’s Galaxy Upgrade program.
We’re crossing our fingers though that maybe—just maybe—Samsung’s new offer would be extended to a country in Asia like, say, the Philippines.
The Note 7 initially released on August 19 but a series of incidents where customers reported it catching fire or in some cases exploding resulted in the then flagship to be recalled and eventually pulled out from the market.
Details of local unit replacement and other exchanges can be found below:
