The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 arrived on the market and it disappeared just as fast as it came thanks to the faulty battery which set the device on fire. Samsung lost a great deal of money and they also lost faith of some of their customers, but this hasn’t stopped them from indirectly confirming a follow up the handset.
It was said that Samsung might give an incentive to those who bought the Note 7 by way of offering discounts on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy 8. Now they have just revealed an upgrade program over in South Korea for owners of the Note 7 and with it came some interesting information.
Anyone who bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea can choose to replace the device with the S7 or S7 Edge and they can upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or the S8 when it arrives next year. The upgrade means that people can upgrade to the new handsets for half the price of the S7 or the Note 7.
What was interesting about this is that they did inadvertently confirm that we will see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 next year. There has been speculation going around that following the incident with the Note 7 the series might be discontinued. However it is looking as though this isn’t going to happen.
