As the dust begins to settle on the Galaxy Note 7 recall, Samsung is now gearing up to start selling the flagship smartphone once again. The company today announced that the Galaxy Note 7 is now available for purchase. Sales were resumed in its home market of South Korea on October 1 and Samsung says that the relaunch will follow suit in other markets across the globe “in the coming weeks.”
The company set up Galaxy Note 7 experience zones in several locations across South Korea on the eve of the relaunch. The zones enabled people to try out some of the best features of the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung says that the zones attracted large crowds of customers who are willing to purchase the handset. “Along with the several other experience zones showcasing Samsung’s latest product, guests have crowded our Galaxy Note7 experience zone since this morning,” said Junghyun Kim, Manager of the Samsung D’light shop in Seoul, adding that they were particularly interested in checking out features like the new S Pen, S Translator as well as the improved camera.
Samsung has once again reiterated its call for existing customers who have not yet taken part in the Galaxy Note 7 replacement program. It calls upon them to hand in their faulty unit and receive a safe, new one which is not a fire hazard.
