Samsung resumes Galaxy Note 7 sales in South Korea


Last updated: October 1st, 2016 at 10:40 UTC+02:00

Samsung has announced that it has resumed sales of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea. This news comes almost a month after the firm halted orders in the region following its discovery that a defunct battery was to blame for devices spontaneously bursting into flames while on charge.

The company has revealed that it kicked off pre-orders for the handset in the region on Wednesday and received an eye-watering 16,000 orders within just 24-hours. Reliable industry analysts have predicted that it will sell approximately 20,000 more units today.

It’s great to see consumers continue to support Samsung by putting the battery debacle to the back of their minds and continuing to purchase its products. After all, the Galaxy Note 7 is an incredibly powerful device that, as outlined in our comprehensive review, is a must-have for any power user.
