Galaxy Note 7 delayed in Malaysia because of supply shortage

The Galaxy Note 7 was one of the most highly anticipated flagship smartphones of this year and if pre-order performance is any indication, the handset is going to do well for itself in the market. It appears that Samsung might be facing a supply shortage at least in some markets because the company has decided to delay the Galaxy Note 7 launch in Malaysia citing supply woes.

In a statement released to the media, Samsung said that it has been experiencing a global supply constraint in meeting demands of market launches as a result of which it’s rescheduling the Malaysia launch to September 2016. Samsung does clarify that those who purchased the Galaxy Note 7 from the Samsung Malaysia pre-order website and participating retailers from August 8-10 will see their orders being fulfilled as promised. It’s unclear at this point in time when Samsung Malaysia is going to provide a confirmed launch date for September. Potential customers in Malaysia will just have to wait now as several markets across the globe get the handset on August 19. Customers in Europe can express solidarity with them as the Galaxy Note 7 will also be released in September across the continent.
