Galaxy Note7 Sales Will Finally Resume In Europe On October 28By cheatmaster 12:18 Fri, 06 Aug 2021 Comments
Sales of the Galaxy Note7 have been resumed in the US already, and they're due to restart in South Korea tomorrow. But what about Europe? Today Samsung has revealed a recent date for this, and unfortunately it's quite far away still.
The company says that, "subject to a full completion of the exchange program", you'll be able to purchase a brand recent (and safe) Galaxy Note7 in Europe starting on October 28. So we're still more than a month away from that happening.
Hopefully every owner of the unsafe, prone to catch fire Note7 will acquire it replaced before October 28 so that people who haven't managed to order one before the global recall started on September 2 will finally have a chance to buy the phablet.
Samsung says 57% of Note7 customers in Europe have exchanged their units in the first week of the replacement program. Of those people, 90% chose to acquire a safe Note7, and 3% went with another Samsung phone. That means only 7% asked for a refund, theoretically using that to purchase a smartphone from another brand.
