Samsung will resume sales of the Galaxy Note 7 on September 28

The Galaxy Note 7 recall debacle is gradually coming to an end for Samsung. In the coming week the company will start providing replacement inventory in key markets so that existing customers can turn in their Galaxy Note 7 units for new ones that have safe batteries. Once it’s done replacing units, Samsung can get down to the business of selling the Galaxy Note 7 once again as sales were suspended when it officially acknowledged the battery cell issue and recalled the handset. Samsung has now said that it’s going to resume Galaxy Note 7 sales on September 28.

A spokeswoman for the company has confirmed that Samsung is going to resume sales of the Galaxy Note 7 on September 28 in its home market of South Korea. Samsung will start providing replacement inventory in South Korea from Monday so there will be ample time for it to complete the replacement program before it resumes sales. Sales will resume in other countries as and when conditions allow but it shouldn’t take more than a couple of weeks for the company to start selling the Galaxy Note 7 across the globe once again.

guys let’s make it clear. Samsung wouldn’t push S8 this year! it seen clearly by the sale again the note7 with fixed battery. they sale the note7 if there would see issues they would make Plus model. every year around fab . they push new S phone it was like that since S1 , and it wouldn’t change, so stop living in a fairytale and wakeup s8 would be lunch in fab 2017 or month later in Europe or usa. Samsung wouldn’t spend 2 billion on note7 fixing and replacement for push s8 , the company mobile department works also… Read more »

I think the Note 8 will be a really early release because of the Note 7 issues. The Note 7 has a bad reputation now I think Samsung is going to get the S8 and Note 8 right or they are really going to have financial problems. Listening to their customers adding the IR blaster for one. If they want to bring customers back after this experiments with designs aren’t going to work

Samsung will be in redemption mode, which is good for us.

Financial problems, hardly. And the number of customers wanting an IR blaster probably account for less than 0.01% of its potential buyers so it is pointless adding one.

I was all set to buy the Note 7 but after this I’m giving it a miss. For the simple fact that this phone will have zero resale value in a years time due to the stigma.

What lesson have they learned? It was a manufacturing error, errors can happen any time.

Mine functioned fine. No issues whatsoever, but turned it in since the manufacturers demanded that it be replaced.

I feel well cared for and protected by Samsung. To be honest, I will buy Samsung devices again, prices permitting.

Same here. I have no problems with Samsung at all. Mine was fine too but decided to do what Samsung said and turn it off and wait for the new one. My trust in the company is the same as it was. Family and friends who use a Samsung device don’t seem to care about that at all. My sister will buy soon the S7 and a friend the Note 7 when it’s on stock. Two friends told me that they always bought Samsung smartphones and tablets and they’re fine with the company. BTW the Note 7 is a jewel,… Read more »

Potential buyers will for sure go for the phone with a reputation for blowing up. The Note brand is seriously damaged.

The prices will drop on the Note 7.

I don’t see how the brand is damaged, specially since there is a recall process, a website that you can find if your IMEI is OK, and you get a brand new device.

The Note7 will be forever known as the phone that blew up. But since most sheeple have a 24 hour memory who knows how long that will last. Its up to the MSM.

Average user remember which iPhone bent?
You know the answer.
Same with Note 7. People knows about a Samsung device. Only users of the Note 7 and tech freaks like us knows which model it was.

No disrespect to Samsung or the Note brand, but it doesn’t bother me if the reputation is seriously damaged. I don’t buy a phone because of it’s reputation. It is the product and the price i pay for it that matters. The Note 7 is an amazing phone and if the prices drop that’s even better!
