In an apparent bid to regain some face after the Galaxy Note 7 “explosiongate” fiasco, Samsung has now revealed an upgrade program for former owners of its short-lived combustible phablet. Called Galaxy Upgrade, the program allows users who trade their Galaxy Note 7 in for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 EDGE to receive an upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 when they launch next year.
Interestingly, this gives away Samsung’s plans for a Galaxy S8, which we already knew about, however, there were rumours of the Note series being abandoned, so plans for a Note 8 are somewhat surprising.
The upgrade plan will not be free, however, it will mean that users will only pay 50% of the price of their Galaxy S7 to get the new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 on arrival. At the moment Samsung has only announced this plan for users in South Korea.
“In offering the Note 8 upgrade option, Samsung indirectly reinforced previous statements that the Note series will not be discontinued. The company said the availability of such a program in other markets will be dependent on the situation in each country. It did not elaborate,” said a Reuters report.
For the program in South Korea, it will be open until November 30 2016 – users who’ve already exchanged their Note 7 units in the region will also be eligible for the program.
“The Galaxy Upgrade program has no monthly fees like the existing Galaxy Club program,” says a report from SamMobile.
