Samsung will reportedly relaunch the Galaxy Note 7 in India on October 7, aggressive marketing push expected

Samsung was supposed to launch the Galaxy Note 7 in India on September 2 but it ended up confirming the Galaxy Note 7’s battery cell issue and immediately suspending sales as it needed to replace all existing units first. As a result of the global recall, customers in India who had pre-ordered their units were sent messages informing them that their shipments will be delayed. A new report out of the country suggests that Samsung is going to relaunch the Galaxy Note 7 in India on October 7. The launch is said to be accompanied by an aggressive marketing push to inform customers that the new units are completely safe.

Samsung is said to prominently highlight that new units being sold in India have been manufactured separately and are not refurbished versions of the ones it has recalled in its marketing efforts in the country. Samsung is said to aggressively market the Galaxy Note 7 as it seeks to counter the iPhone 7 in one of the most lucrative mobile markets on the planet. Apple has recently been focusing on the Indian market as it seeks to increase its share so it really is in Samsung’s interest to ensure that people retain confidence in its products, particularly the Galaxy Note 7 since its successor isn’t due until late 2017.

There will always be a better Note or S at any point of time if you are ready to wait. The Note that follows the S8 will be power packed to earn back the bad taste the heating issue has caused to Note7. The higher management will, from now on, will not let the S8 to be pushed in a hurry and meet with similar fate like Note 7. They have put enough tech into Note7 to be a good seller as Note 5. It’s just that they somehow needs to survive the recall period within a couple of weeks… Read more »

Was in dilemma whether to cancel my pre-order and look for some other phones .. But since the unit which will be coming to India won’t be a refurbished one… No harm waiting another fortnight… Samsungs this move will surely improve the brand confidence at least in Indian consumer’s…
