Samsung suffered a serious setback after numerous cases of the Galaxy Note 7 exploding were reported due to faulty battery issues. As per reports, Note 7 owners who will participate will only have 50% of the costs for the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge returned when turning in their Note 7s. But when the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 rolls out, they will then be eligible to exchange their defective devices for either one of the upcoming new flagships. As of now, this incredibly convenient promo is live only in South Korea but the highlight is the unofficial hint at the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ending all assumptions of Samsung closing down the Note series after the Galaxy Note 7 mishap. Samsung seems to have learnt a huge lesson with the major setback they suffered in the market and are reportedly trying enough to turn things back in their favour. The tech giants have been launching quite a number of smartphones of al categories in recent times and quick intervals targeted at Samsung faithful who seemed have lost faith in the company due to a large amount of negative criticism the company received. The good news for Samsung enthusiasts is that there is going to be a Galaxy Note 8 and the possible release date of the device will be mid-2017 after Samsung rolls out its flagship Galaxy S8 in March 2017.
