After what I’ll describe as a tragedy, Samsung officially announced the relaunch of the Galaxy Note 7 across the globe. The new batch of phablets is ready and has been shipped to all partners, retailers, and carriers. It should be free of defective batteries, and, hopefully, of stuck S-Pen styluses.
The Galaxy Note 7 has already been relaunched in South Korea and Samsung is pushing it aggressively on the market via special experience stores. The rest of the supported markets are now getting it, too, and a proper advertisement campaign is to be expected.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 sales were earlier halted due to defective batteries that were catching on fire, or worse. An unprecedented for this market global call out was issued and is still active. The early adopters should have already gotten their replacements, but if someone is still thinking about it – they should act on the callout asap.
We want to think Samsung are still the leaders in this industry, given how rare the iPhone 7 is and how quick they have bounced back. Need I also mention that they have maintained headlines since the first explosion.
Recall that Samsung has earlier announced a global recall of the Note 7 along with a halting of sales after concerns of faulty components causing battery explosions. Every Note 7 that was sold before September 15 was affected by the recall and mandated to be returned or replaced. Though it was scary given that product recalls aren’t fun for anyone to deal with, but Samsung took the necessary steps to make sure all of the bad units are replaced.
