Samsung has announced a new upgrade offer for the Galaxy Note 7 users in South Korea. As part of replacement offer, users who have exchanged or are going to exchange their Note 7 smartphone for Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 Edge will get 50 percent off on upcoming flagship devices by the South Korean company. The offer also confirms that the company will be launching a Note 8 smartphone along with the Galaxy S8, next year.
Samsung stated that the Galaxy Upgrade Program will allow its customers to purchase the upcoming Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 devices [which will be released next year] at up to 50 percent discount. The company is also offering 50 percent discount on LCD repair costs and fast-track service for after-sales for these customers.
Under the Galaxy Upgrade Program, customers choosing the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge under a 24-month contract will only need to pay a monthly fee for only 12-months. Then, they can exchange it for a Galaxy S8 or Note 8 next year. If you wish to change to another phone before a year, you will only need to pay up to those 12 months.
Samsung claims that the new program is aimed to ‘lightening the burden for those who swap their Note 7 device for the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge’. The company was expected to come up with some healing offers for its customers after the unfortunate run of Galaxy Note 7.
The new Samsung Galaxy Upgrade Program will end on November 30th for South Korean customers. However, the start date of the program soon will be announced after consulting with the carriers. Those who have already exchanged their Note 7 device for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge are also eligible for the offer.
